Appalachian Trail Design, Construction, and Maintenance

Summary

A handbook on trail work, from landscape values to the nitty-gritty of moving rock.

Overview

by Robert Proudman and William Birchard

This is the definitive handbook on trail work, from landscape values to the nitty-gritty of moving rock. Don’t forget to pair this with the key supplement, A.T. Fieldbook: Maintenance and Rehabilitation Guidelines for Volunteers.

From the back cover:

Here are eight decades of experience gathered by the citizen-volunteers who help design, build and maintain the world-famous Appalachian Trail. How can a two-thousand-mile footpath through a fourteen-state area with a population of more than eighty million people, that attracts more than three million visitors each year, still manage to provide a primitive hiking and camping experience? By the art and science of "wearing lightly on the land."
