The Park has asked for our help with the trail Monitoring survey
CRNRA TRAILS MONITORING SYSTEM
Unlike the Work Order Form, the CRNRA Trails Monitoring Form is used to report impacts to park trails caused by visitor use. Think of it more as social science monitoring than facility/structural monitoring! You can submit monitoring reports related to:
- Visitor-caused resource damage along trails (e.g., graffiti on historic structure)
- Unauthorized parking (5+ vehicles parked outside of designated spaces at a trailhead)
- Social trailing (i.e., unofficial/unauthorized trails created by visitors)
- User conflicts between bikers and pedestrians
- Improper dog behavior (dog waste, dogs off leash, etc.)
