Feather River College seeks those interested in learning new trail-building skills or practicing those they already have while helping to restore a Quincy icon, all via trail building courses.
Two courses are offered at FRC this fall that will focus on teaching the trail-building skills necessary to restore the 100-plus stone steps leading up to the Argentine Rock Lookout. Students will have the opportunity to learn safe rock movement techniques, stone splitting with feathers and wedges, and dry stone stair construction.
