@John pick the right gravel and even your soft feet will love it. There are many, many different types of gravel. The smaller or finer the gravel is, the softer it is for walking barefoot. Try 1/4" or less! But don't use it on the driveway or it will gravitate to another area. BTW, pea gravel which is commonly used for landscaping is too big for your feets. Of course, it'll cost ya to keep your feet tender - about $50 per cu yard.

I like gravel! I use one with fine material so it packs well. It's still permeable and provides a stable, smooth surface to walk on. I torch weeds that sprout without fire danger.
