The asphalt is expected to wear under normal conditions of use; Erosion of the material along the edges of the trail (the decomposed granite (DG)) is actively being monitored by the City. To extend the life of the DG surface, please remain within the designated bounds of the trail.  Use the designated access points to and from the trail, and refrain from using the sides of the trail for ingress/egress.  Please do not walk through the landscaping.
