[nct-l] trail construction


I am a trail maintainer and crew leader as well as a staff member at Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado.  Our organization puts out a manual on leading trail crews and the basics of trail construction.  It is widely used here in Colorado by the Colorado Trail Foundation, Continental Divide Trail Association, and the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative.  For for information or to order the manual you can go to the web site www.voc.org or feel free to contact me personally at: (303) 715-1010 or corylampert@hotmail.com
