IMBA Publishes New Trail Building Book

JUNE 21, 2004 -- BOULDER, CO (BRAIN)--IMBA has a new resource for land managers and trail builders in the form of a new book: Trail Solutions: IMBA's Guide to Building Sweet Singletrack. The book expands upon the advocacy group's 2001 guide, Building Better Trails.

The 272-page manual explains the trail-building process from planning and design through tool selection, construction and maintenance. It provides new advice on banked turns, rock armoring, mechanized tools, freeriding, downhilling and risk management. A section called Trail Solutions describes how to obtain funding and support volunteers for trail projects.

More than 20 trail professionals, land managers and IMBA staff contributed to the book, which was supported by a grant from the Federal Highway Administration's Recreational Trails program.

The book is available through IMBA's web site or by calling (888) 442-4622.
