Managing Degraded Off-Highway Vehicle Trails in Wet, Unstable, and Sensitive Environments

The cover of the 'Managing Degraded Off-Highway Vehicle Trails in Wet, Unstable, and Sensitive Environments' document.

Managing off-highway vehicle trails in wet areas such as Alaska can be a challenge. Kevin Meyer, an environmental specialist and soil scientist for the USDI National Park Service (NPS) in Anchorage, AK, explains why off-highway vehicle trails become degraded and offers techniques to prevent degradation in the report, Managing Degraded Off-Highway Vehicle Trails in Wet, Unstable, and Sensitive Environments (0223–2821–MTDC). The results of tests comparing different options for hardening off-highway vehicle trails are included, as well as appendixes that provide installation instructions for porous pavement panels and a list of locations where trail-hardening systems are being tested in cooperation with the NPS Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program.
