Geosynthetics for Trails in Wet Areas: 2008 Edition

By James Scott Groenier

Trails in wet areas sometimes have problems, such as erosion and sedimentation, which leave trail users unhappy. One way to reduce these problems is to use geosynthetics. These materials perform three major functions: separating wet soil from the trail bed, reinforcing the trail bed, and draining the trail. This report helps trail managers understand basic design concepts for using geosynthetics in wet areas. Detailed product descriptions, specifications, drawings, case studies, and manufacturers are included. This report updates and replaces "Geosynthetics for Trails in Wet Areas: 2000 Edition."
