Trail Construction and Maintenance Notebook, produced by the USDA ???

This was a fun-read book, entertaining, since it provided an introduction which most people are unfamiliar with, regarding the thought processes used to design trails, and the methods for maintaining those trails. Needless to say, the “science” of trail building has improved greatly over the years, so that many of the trails that one is used to from years ago, where the trail is a veritable river, or lengthy mud-puddle, reflects poor design of the trail. A trail should manifest minimal maintenance, and should remain comfortable throughout dry and wet weather to walk on the trail. It was used as the supporting text for my trail building class that I attended several weeks ago.
