1.13 Natural Surface Shared Use Path

BikeTexas Benchmark Study

A natural surface shared use path is a wide path for multiple activities such as biking, running, walking, etc. The natural surface may be crushed limestone, gravel, mulch, dirt, etc. These natural materials have varying levels of porosity. If the path is designed with minimum grade changes, then less maintenanceis required.
