  • Incorporate a series of different surfaces en route such as: bark mulch; rounded gravel, fir cones; sand; pebbles; long grass; leaf litter and not forgetting some mud!
  • Areas of loose parts may need separating by sections of natural ground.
  • Large scrubbing brushes, water and towels at the end of the trail are advisable for cleaning up dirty feet!
