A greenway is a continuous strip of vegetated land protected for special uses, extending through an urban area or area targeted for future development. Various segments of a greenway should perform one or more of the following functions: beautify the City, preserve open space, maintain wildlife habitat, provide paved foot trails/bikeways, manage floodplains and stormwater, control sedimentation, provide a park-like environment, provide access to surface drainage systems and service distribution lines, reduce air pollution, absorb noise, and cool the urban atmosphere.

…my own observations lead me to believe that the greatest trail damage is caused by (1) improper trail design (i.e., trails installed at too steep a grade), (2) inadequate maintenance (i.e., failure to install water bars or other devices to divert the flow of water off the trail bed), (3) the utterly indefensible practice of some hikers in taking short cuts on graded trails.

Soil is not usually lost in slabs or heaps of magnificent tonnage. It is lost a little at a time over millions of acres by the careless acts of millions of people. It cannot be saved by heroic feats of gigantic technology, but only by millions of small acts and restraints, conditioned by small fidelities, skills, and desires. Soil loss is ultimately a cultural problem; it will be corrected by cultural solutions.
