[nct-l] trail construction

I found that the AT trail-building guide is the best available.  While 
directed in particular at the AT, it is widely applicable.  The AMC one is 
also pretty good.

I also read a guide put out by an English trail group.  It was interesting 
to read long passages on how to get through peat bogs.
