    How would you fix this??

    this trail runs near a creek. the trail is worn into the ground 3-5", allowing water to run down the trail into the creek. the land to the left in the picture slopes away from the trail, creating a natural "ditch", which is usually wetter than the trail. the trail is actually on the high point of the land. it's taken 10+ years for the trail to erode into the creek. the creek is a focal point of the trail.

    i think i know how i'm fixing this but i'd like to hear your comments/opinions/suggestions.

    thanks.

    Can you put some logs into the ground to divert water flow. That is probably going to continue to erode everytime the cree rises and cuts into the bank.

    grade reversals and board walk

    blue lines are grade reversals and/or knick.

    Not much can be done about the creek eroding the shore line outside of building a wing-dam of sort or armoring the shore line.

    That looks like a spot at BMSP where mother nature and property lines (road) give few choices. Just yesterday I thought how one of those occasional huge rains could be a problem there.
