Barrow, Jerry D; Groenier, James Scott. 2013. Accessible Trail Surfaced With Resin-Based Pavement: A Case Study. 1223 2309P. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, National Technology and Development Program.

The Forest Service Trails Unlimited enterprise team constructed an accessible trail at the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) using NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement. The resin pavement blends with the natural environment and provides a smooth, accessible surface. This tech tip explains some of the advantages and disadvantages of using resin pavement instead of bituminous hot mix asphalt and provides a step-by-step description of the construction project at the Okefenokee NWR.

Keywords: accessibility, accessible trails, asphalt, boardwalks, elevated boardwalks, geotextile, NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement, Trails Unlimited
