Like every Trail Building School, Mark and Shane started the education of local trail builders with an intense theory session. It teaches the basic principles of trail construction and trail maintenance.
After the theory session, the biggest part of the Trail Building School takes place outside. It starts with discussing general challenges of the working area. Defining trail corridors and marking them is the main objective of these initial walk abouts.

The rocky terrain in Nordfjord requires great skills when it comes to pitching and armoring. The bigger rocks can only be moved in a team effort.
