Abstract

This MQP examined sustainable alternatives in the design of a recreational trail in Fultonville, New York. Design components included trail surfacing, stormwater management, and slope retention in areas of concern along the proposed trail. Topographic surveying and a hydrologic analysis were conducted in order to investigate a number of alternatives for each design component. The options were evaluated based on holistic criteria and presented to the sponsor as final design recommendations for the proposed trail.
