IMBA Trail Workshop in Simcoe County, ON
AJ Strawson and Rachael Raven of the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew will be in Simcoe County for a free IMBA Trail Building School in conjunction with the Trailblazing Festival. This event is being hosted by the Barrie Cycling Club.
Come out to meet the Crew, and network with other trail users in your area! You'll learn the art and science of sustainable trail building, and get hands-on instruction in the field!
Not a mountain biker? The principles of building sustainable trails apply to all users (hikers, trail runners, equestrians, and cycling), and our workshops are open to the public -- all users and land managers are invited. Get more info on the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew here.
