Spreading 30 years of trail knowledge

IMBA Trail Labs

In 2018, IMBA has partnered with the Walton Family Foundation and Visit Bentonville to host three, in-depth and hands-on workshops in Bentonville, AR, an IMBA Ride Center. Each workshop will highlight best practices and challenges across the trail design, tourism, promotion, and management spectrum. Attendees will be able to return home with a plan for community trail development.
