This presentation will reveal the process of planning, designing and constructing trails within four different landscape settings identifying challenges and solutions.
This presentation will reveal the process of planning, designing and constructing trails within four different landscape settings identifying challenges and solutions. Four case studies will be discussed; an urbanized trail corridor adjacent to a historic downtown; a regional trail along an industrialized and neglected creek corridor; a regional trail along a pristine mountain river; retrofitting an urban trail within a constrained major drainageway corridor. Each case study will: Demonstrate innovative trail planning when working with public agencies and the community. Explore difficult sites, the construction solutions and techniques to make successful trails. Implement good and sustainable practices in trail design.
