Abstract

Footpath degradation is assessed by comparison of surveys carried out in 1983 and 1992 along the principal cross mountain path: the Brandy Pad. Measurements show that overall path width has generally increased, as have the number of subsidiary tracks and the extent of bare ground. Greatest changes occurred where path width was initially narrow, suggesting that there are maximum widths beyond which walkers will no longer seek detours by establishing new paths
