Least-cost Path with search criteria

Discussion created by JSchmidt77 on Sep 17, 2012
I have been able to use spatial analyst to draw least-cost path but would like insert a rule.  For an animal to travel they must come across a cell with a low enough cost within 25 cells or the path must be re-drawn.  For example, as the least-cost path is draw every 25 cells must have a cost value of less than 10.  This means depending on the path even if a cell is too costly it can still be traversed if the another cell in the path is less than 10.  So it is conditional and a cell is not always flagged as impassible.  Can this be done?  Thanks in advance.
