PROJECT DETAILS

Penn Trails partnered with New York trail builder Wilderness Property Management  to develop a solution for the heavily deteriorated Falls Access Trail. The solution involved complex restoration and remediation of strom water and retention features. Utilizing Penn Trails’ state-of-the-art GIS data dictionary, station logs were generated outlining every design element along the trail, allowing for accurate cost estimation and seamless integration of design data into the final plan set and construction details.

The project also included design and cost estimation for a hand boat launch on Lake Myosotis.

Plan and budget documents created by Penn Trails were used to apply for a New York Recreational Trails Program Grant for construction funding that was awarded in December of 2021.
