Trail and Road Layout

Trails and roads give us access to the forestlands that we love. Yet they are the single largest contributor to erosion, sedimentation, and degradation of water quality. They also greatly affect forest aesthetics, wildlife habitat, and vegetation. A well-planned trail or road system can provide year-round access without adversely affecting these delicate systems. Brian Knox has been designing road and trail systems that provide access while protecting the overall forest system for more than two decades.
