This report updates "Geosynthetics for Trails in Wet Areas: 2000 Edition," by Steve Monlux and Brian Vachowski. Geosynthetics are synthetic materials used with soil or rock in many types of construction. They perform three major functions: separation, reinforcement, and drainage. This report describes several types of geosynthetics; explains basic geosynthetic design concepts for trail construction in wet areas; and provides information about geosynthetic products. Detailed product specifications and procurement sources are listed.
Keywords: Erosion control, FHWA, geocells, geocomposites, geogrids, geonets, geo-others, geosynthetics, geotextiles, sheet drains, trail construction, trail turnpikes.
