TRAILS


Trails are completely outside of the road right-of-way and often pass through parks or other green spaces. These trails are designed for pedestrians, cyclists, in-line skaters and skateboarders, in locations where the trail surface permits these activities. These trails are not illuminated and not maintained during winter time.
