How wide should a path be?

The path should be whatever width was dedicated for public use. This width may have arisen through usage, or by formal agreement, or by order, for example if the path has been diverted. The width may be recorded in the statement accompanying the definitive map but in many cases the proper width will be a matter of past practice on that path. Note the width of the right of way itself may be greater, or sometimes less, than the width of any track or hard-surfaced strip along the route.
