Classes & Workshops

We have 2 basic categories of classes & workshops…… 

Teaching our volunteers the skills necessary  to safely do trail building & maintenance

Every year, hundreds of PATC volunteers cut or reroute miles of trails. Fallen trees are removed with chainsaws, crosscut saws and axes. Stone staircases and boulder stream crossings are built using winches, highlines and rigging gear. PATC classes and workshops teach the skills necessary to safely conduct these activities.

Teaching outdoor skills for the public

Throughout the year, PATC offers a number of outdoor skills classes for the public. These classes include backpacking, hike leadership, Leave No Trace and outdoor ethics, and CPR and backcountry first aid.   Additionally, our volunteers teach classes at your local REI.
