It would be effective in repairing significant erosion damage on trail tread that would NOT be used for further traffic of any type . But that did not happen on the sections it was used .
It is akin to riding up or down a plastic Coke bottle . So riders would ride around the geo webbing witch mitigated the affects of the geo webbing in stopping the erosion . Hence , nice big ruts around the webbing and more eroded trail at the bottom of the fall line . Sucks when it's wet also .
If you don't want to reroute to stop the erosion and sand build up the other alternative , in my opinion .would be Appalachian Armoring . As you can see from the following example it can be very labor and material intensive compared to doing a sustainable reroute .
