Finely crushed rock (crusher fines) is a useful alternative to paving trails that accommodates most trail activities.
Crusher fines is a finely-crushed stone mix that is often the byproduct of gravel operations. Crushed stone trails provide a user-friendly, all-season surface for all types and ages of visitors, including strollers, wheelchairs, and road bikes. If built properly crushed stone trails can meet the specification for a "firm and stable" surface as defined in current federal guidelines for accessible trails.

Water running down the slope gathers on the crusher fines trail because of insufficient cross slope of the trail.
Here the edging keeps water from draining so obstacles in the form of drainage bars were placed to try to keep the crushed rock from eroding.
