Recreational trails exist in parks, along waterways, and through other natural areas, allowing people to enjoy access to sensitive natural environments in a manageable way. Using permeable surfaces, instead of traditional concrete or asphalt, allows for better environmental and stormwater control. Trails can see a variety of uses, including people, bicycles, equestrian, and small vehicle loads, so utilizing a solution that is durable and flexible is key.
