Description: A trail transect that documents trail conditions and changes in trails has been used successfully over the past 3 years to measure soil loss, and changes in trail width and vegetation. The system also can be used to study the relationship between trail degradation and the physical characteristics of the site. Data from trail transects can be useful in determining the physical conditions favorable for trail construction.
