Pick the Brains of 100 Trail Managers
Maintenance and Operation Manual is Free from RTC to You
How do other trail organizations handle the same maintenance and operating issues you're facing? Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's Northeast Regional Office recently released Rail-Trail Maintenance and Operation: Ensuring the Future of Your Trail—A Survey of 100 Rail-Trails. This 40-page report documents maintenance practices, issues and costs for 100 rail-trails, primarily in the northeast United States. You'll find information on trail ownership, maintenance responsibility and cost, liability and other operational issues. Maintenance of various trail components—surface, vegetation, structures and amenities—is discussed. Maintenance tips, sample schedules and budgets are included.
Trail managers, local and county governments, and anyone else interested in long-term success of rail-trails can download the Maintenance and Operation Manual (1.6M ) or e-mail us or call 717-238-1717 to request a printed copy.
