COSA Designs/standards for trail access gates

Hello – The City of Greeley Natural Areas and Trails program is looking for designs/standards for gates used to temporarily close recreational trails, especially those trails that may need frequent closures due to flooding, erosion, or other types of activities that present a hazard to trail users. We would like something that is quick and easy for staff to activate, and difficult for non-authorized people to open or move.

Thanks for your feedback!
