Sideling tracks are sustainable and
the views are better!
ridge line The highest points of a long hill or a spur leading to the top. Ridge lines are not good places for tracks as water tends to drain along the track
self-
   benching
An alignment on a hillslope of less than 15 that will establish satisfactorily through continued use (without mechanical benching)
self-guided
   walk
Walkers navigate their own way following an obvious trail supported by trackmarkers and track notes
set-out After flagging, the route is identified by easily visible pegs and/or range poles, so that track development keeps on line
sideling A track which exploits the side of a hill rather than ridge lines or drainage lines
sustainable
   track
A wire peg with a plastic flag which is useful for defining proposed track alignments in open areas
 
  ... walkers don't need graded tracks ...
