Mountain Biking - Trail Building Tips
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I am going to try and make a new trail through some woods in my area, but need some tips on how to go about it. Moving trees and rocks are self explanatory, but what should be done to create an actual path? I dont really have any access to a dirt bike or four wheeler...

The IMBA guide is awesome. I'm reading the "Guide to Sweet Singletrack" right now. Thinking back to sweet trails I've been on in the past, they really do adhere to the IMBA principles, whether it was intentional or not.
OP: Where are you located? Is there an IMBA group near you? Try to find out who maintains your local trails, and hook up with them.
