...a biking trail made from gravel ??!!

I wouldn't even want to walk on that, let alone try to ride a bike on it.

I'd rather have gravel. blacktop is terrible for running. it's hard on feet, shins, and knees.

The trail differs slightly between Upper and Lower Saucon Townships primarily in width but both sections use stone "screenings" or finely crushed stone on top of several layers of packed (rolled) larger stone base. The screenings pack nicely between the larger subsurface. The surface is "crowned" for water run-off and the top is flexible but firm. It is an ideal surface for biking, running or walking as evidenced by the high traffic during peak periods. Blacktopping it would be a waste of taxpayers money. Since I live along the trail, I use it daily along with hundreds of other hard core cyclists and joggers. In response to the original post which was ill-conceived at best, I attempted to keep this as an educated answer, but in the end, "you can't fix stupid"
