Replay: Maintaining Trails

Join us on our Facebook page every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. for a live video with Great Parks staff! We’ll have story time, take nature walks, meet ambassador animals and more. We’ll post replays here in case you miss one, and don’t hesitate to comment on past videos – we’ll keep answering questions in the comments!

Cupping, grade reversals, rolling grade dips, rock armoring, running slope, deberming, outslope – maintaining a trail isn’t just about keeping it clear of plants! Our trail experts have to understand biology, engineering and more to keep our trails safe and fun for our guests. Learn more about the work Great Parks staff has completed on the Hedgeapple Trail at Woodland Mound to improve the trail for park guests.
