This book is essential reading for any landscape / countryside manager. It's packed with useful information, providing examples of good and bad designs from all over the world.
It includes trail designs for walkers, cyclists and horse riders with some, although limited information on providing access for all. Visitor information, car parking and children's play are also thoroughly covered.
It stresses the need to use local, sustainable products when designing and also gives advice on the positioning of facilities, emphasizing integration into the landscape.
