Twelve Professional Trail Builders Association 2011 Sustainable Trails Conference in Asheville, NC earlier this month. The Sustainable Trails Conference is one of the best resources for knowledge, equipment, expertise and information on the current state of the trails industry. Attendees were able to choose from over 40 informative concurrent sessions, attend an indoor and outdoor tradeshow, and network with trail professionals from across the country. In a recent study, well over half of all respondents indicated trail use as their primary activity in our parks.
