Folks here is an excellent video on why we do not remove leaves from our trails.
Yes we know the leaves make it more challenging to walk, run or ride but by leaving the leaves on the trail our system is more sustainable in the long run.
Thank you for your cooperation.
This video was created by a member of the Rutland High School Year End Study’s (YES) Plan.
The people in this film are in the Mountain Bike and Trail Development, a program that can be chosen when selecting a YES Plan.
