NH9805 : New path

near to Allt Coire an t-Sneachda [water Feature], Highland, Great Britain

New path.
New path.
The Northern Corries of Cairngorm/Cairn Lochan are heavily used. The old unbuilt trods are now being replaced by new paths with adequate drainage. Foot pressure alone does not erode hills, it's the water on exposed earth that makes the mess. With drainage paths can take a lot of punishment, and the granite gravels make for good walking.

This recently built path is heading for Coire an t-Sneachda, the busiest winter climbing venue in Scotland. Note the returning forest, with grazing pressure reduced, reindeer having replaced red deer here, the forest is returning to its old natural treeline. This is at 680m above sealevel.
