Trails and Paths


Few improvements can enhance your ability to enjoy and care for the natural areas on your land like a carefully designed and well-maintained trail system.

Well designed trails will:

  • Not detract from natural beauty or scenery
  • Direct water flow from the trail and limit water erosion.
  • Avoid disrupting sensitive features and rare species
  • Minimize disturbances within healthy natural areas
  • Limit the spread of invasive plants
  • Minimize risks to human health and safety
  • Accommodate the needs of those who use them
