Fall 2017 has seen the expansion of the NSMBA Trail Academy presented by Arc’teryx.

The Trail Academy was initially developed in order to share our knowledge and experience about sustainable trail work and provide our members opportunities to develop skills to help us look after our trails. To accommodate the new classes, we’ve renamed our original Academy course to “Foundations of Trail Care”. Adding to this, we are offering two new theory courses on rock work and wood structures this Fall and have additional courses planned for the Spring. All courses also include a practical session. Read the course descriptions here.
