Several people in the past few months have asked me how I build trail. So here it is. Day one on a new little piece of trail. Steps to complete are. 1 get permission to be there 2 bring drinks 3 get ready to chainsaw or lopper a corridor 4 stare at the fox ( that I swear jumped down out of a tree just after I passed under), catfish, bass, and assorted other woodland creatures. 5 walk around in circles in the woods trying to “feel” where the trail should be and see any interesting features. 6 stress over the actual responsibilities you should be attending to. 7 Then repeat for days till it’s done.
