Option 1 (Separated): Rank these factors according to what is most important to you.

Average priorities over 85 responses
  1. In Option 1, due to topographical constraints, the accessory soft surface trail will be separated from main trail for approximately half of three-mile-long segment. This means the width of the overall trail footprint will vary, becoming narrower in some places.

    Trail width
  2. Both options will require tree removal (as well as planting of new trees and other landscaping). However, Option 1 will remove fewer trees than Option 2.

    Aesthetics/trees
  3. In Option 1, while the main trail/soft surface shoulders will meet ADA standards, the accessory trail will generally have a slope less than 10%, but not meet ADA standards.

    Accessibility

Option 2 (Combined): Rank these factors according to what is most important to you.

Average priorities over 85 responses
  1. In Option 2, the soft surface trail next to the main trail will be up to 8 feet wide in areas where the corridor is not constrained. This means that the width of the overall trail footprint will be maintained for nearly the entire three-mile-long corridor.

  • What are your favorite characteristics of Option 1?
    • soft surface
    • accessory trail is okay
  • What are your least favorite characteristics of Option 1?
    • the soft shoulders are tiny--not enough room to run with a friend

    • almost the whole trail is paved,
  • What are your favorite characteristics of Option 2?
    • larger soft surface
    • unconstrained option leaves room for runners and cyclists
  • What are your least favorite characteristics of Option 2?
    • most of the trail is still paved, making it hard on runners and walkers, the main users of the trail
    • requires expansion of the trail into the forest

    It would be nicest if the trail could remain as is. I run on it almost every day and it's perfect. Its surface is smooth and gentle on knees and feet. It is already wide enough and is beautiful. I love to ride my bike down it and find it pleasant and adequately smooth. When I want to go on a fast bike ride, I take C2G to the paved portion of the Cedar River trail. So....not changing any of it would make it the most useful to me. Either of these changes would make it harder for me to run with my friends and enjoy the pleasant, natural feeling of the trail.
