Floura Teeter provided landscape architectural services for a 2.5-mile hike/biker trail located in Tuckahoe State Park on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Floura Teeter worked alongside engineers to develop the new smart hiker and biker path and identify alternate trail alignments that avoid or minimize impacts to sensitive environmental locations – especially specimen trees and older trees. Floura Teeter’s services included preparing Forest Conservation documentation, developing a reforestation palette, and identifying wildlife habitats within the Park area.
The design of the shared-use trail includes seven bridges and boardwalks to connect the Adkins Arboretum and Visitor Center with the proposed Upper Chesapeake Rail Trail. The trail is designed to be ADA accessible and accommodates bicyclists, pedestrians, equestrians, and small maintenance vehicles.
