IMBA Guidelines

PTAG strives to build sustainable trails and to improve non-sustainable trails in the parks where its volunteers work. We follow International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) guidelines and have twice hosted IMBA in Pittsburgh for trail education sessions.

For more information on sustainable trail design, visit IMBA's Trail Building and Design resources. PTAG Stewards receive a copy of Trail Solutions: IMBA's Guide to Building Sweet Singletrack and Managing Mountain Biking: IMBA's Guide to Providing Sweet Riding.
