Re: Fwd: RC: Warning Additional Trail Closure
We have a trail in our area that has both a paved strip use by pedestrians,
bicyclists and roller bladers and a parallel unpaved portion for horses (see
http://www.co.snohomish.wa.us/parks/centenntial-frame.htm). Paved bridges
are shared by everyone. Since paving is an expensive proposition, I have to
assume this is a heavily used area. This combination has been successful
although it certainly would not be suitable for an endurance contest. Paved
portion is, I believe, 10 or 12 feet and unpaved perhaps 6 feet. Don't know
how much room is available for trail, and whether there could be sufficient
separtation to be able to continue endurance contests. Always look for
workable compromise if that is possible. Good luck.
