A crucial factor in establishing or maintaining a trail system is arming your personnel with the training and information that they need to be effective as stewards of the land. Field operations related to trail building and maintenance have historically been taught via oral tradition, most often through a mentor/mentee relationship. With the proliferation of trail based recreation, it can be difficult to ensure that staff, volunteers, youth groups, or other labor resources needed to work on trail system all have adequate knowledge and skill.
