Trail design linking the Cumberland Riverfront to Valley Brook Park while also providing a connection to Clarksville’s downtown
ADA accessible design for all trail sections
TSW was hired to design an Upland Trail which would link the Cumberland Riverfront to Valley Brook Park while also providing a connection to the City’s downtown. The downtown district of the City of Clarksville sits atop a pronounced hill overlooking the Cumberland River. This gradient required the trail to traverse some very steep slopes while also providing ADA accessibility to all trail sections. Due to limited site area, TSW’s design required multiple switchbacks integrating ramps and stair sections; the combination of these two modes minimizes both construction costs and the distinction between disabled and abled users.
