Recreational stream crossing effects on sediment delivery and macroinvertebrates in southwestern Virginia, USA.

Abstract

Trail-based recreation has increased over recent decades, raising the environmental management issue of soil erosion that originates from unsurfaced, recreational trail systems. Trail-based soil erosion that occurs near stream crossings represents a non-point source of pollution to streams. We modeled soil erosion rates along multiple-use (hiking, mountain… (More)
