Trail Design for Small Properties provides simple, inexpensive solutions for designing, building, and maintaining sustainable trials—trails for hiking, horseback riding, bicycling, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, off-highway vehicles (OHVs), and all terrain vehicles (ATVs).
If designed with sustainability in mind, a recreational trail can provide years of enjoyment. Sustainable trials hold up to intensive recreational use and severe weather conditions, and require minimal maintenance.
What kind of tread material is best for your trail? Do you need a bridge to cross open water or will stepping stones do? What tools do you need? We answer these questions and more—providing the information you need to make choices that are right for your trail.
