Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Reports
Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Project
The aim of the Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Project is to identify potential land conservation opportunities within a trail’s viewshed, and develop a conservation assessment that scores and ranks priority lands. Thirty (30) Circuit Trails are included in this study. This report describes the methodology for assessing land conservation priorities related to the viewsheds of the Circuit Trails within suburban and rural areas. The goals of this analysis are two-fold. The first goal is to identify potential conservation needs based on a trail’s viewshed and second, to develop a conservation assessment and ranking of these priority lands. The results of this analysis will be used to provide organizations and project partners with a conservation and visual assessment report to assist with local conservation efforts.
Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Pilot Project
The Pilot Project includes an assessment of approximately eight (8) miles of the Schuylkill River Trail in Montgomery and Berks Counties. Click the link below for the final Pilot Project for the Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Project report.
