What this handbook is about
 
The advice and methods described herein refer to Australian Standard AS 2156 Class 3 walking tracks under South Australian conditions.
 
Class 3 walking tracks provide the best access for most walking in near and remote natural areas where:-
there is a defined track on the ground
specific control of grade ensures accessibility to a wide range of walkers and protects against environmental degradation
walking surface is the natural substrate, 300 to 450mm in width
use of steps is nil or minimal
maximum grade is 6
There is a need for many existing tracks to be raised to this standard
  Low cost and low maintenance . . .
