Desire Path

A desire path or a desire line is a path or trail that is created by human traffic.  Caused by foot traffic compacting the soil and crushing, these paths tend to appear in busy areas where a consistent path or short cut is walked on daily.  They are very common in places such as parks and on college campuses.
