Learn Trail Maintenance Skills Through New Videos Online

We are pleased to premier our new Trail Skills Institute Video Series on the ATA’s Youtube channel. The videos were produced in partnership with Flagline Trails, American Conservation Experience (ACE) and Arizona Conservation Corps (AZCC) by Outdoor Evolution Media. They are being filmed in various locations across the state and include tips on trail maintenance in the wide variety of environments the Arizona Trail covers in its 800 mile journey from Mexico to Utah.

Click here to see the first of three videos currently available: “Why We Build Trails?” The other two videos cover “Desert Brushing Techniques” and “Evaluating Erosion.”

Future videos in the series will cover topics such as brushing in forested areas, solutions to erosion issues, and tips for long term vegetation management. The video series is free to anyone with an internet connection and is designed to make basic skills development accessible to a diverse audience. They are a supplement to our hands-on Trail Skills Institute, with dates for in person training in 2021 to be announced soon.
