Kentucky Horse Council Announces Sustainable Trail Building Class

The Kentucky Horse Council is inviting anyone interested in building sustainable trails to a one-day Trail Building Class on Saturday, May 16th or Saturday, May 30th at Red Hill Horse Camp in Livingston, Kentucky.

This class is open to all non-motorized trail user groups, tourism and travel individuals, and anyone interested in building or maintaining non-motorized trails in their communities. The trail topics to be discussed will not be unique to horse trails, but are applicable for any type of non-motorized trail.

Topics to be covered in this one-day class include: a discussion of trail environment in Kentucky; introduction of trail issues involving user groups, public and private lands; key features of good trail design, and less acceptable trail design; options to limit erosion through design techniques, and an introduction to trail tools and equipment.

The class will involve a morning classroom session, lunch, and an afternoon session outside observing and discussing on a specific trail section. No trail building experience is necessary, and the class is limited to 15 individuals.

Registration prices are $50 for participants, with a discounted rate of $45 for Kentucky Horse Council members. Registration fees include all materials and lunch.
