Trail Drainage In The Vienna Woods

This is a continuation of my Austrian Reflections Series.

These are photos of a trail drainage system used on mountain bike and hiking trails in the Vienna Woods. The above ground system makes it easier for trail users, or the rain, to clear silt out of the troughs than it would be to clear out culverts under the trail and you can still ride over the troughs..

Having been fortunate to hike in the Vienna Woods I will take this opportunity to post some other photos of the mountain bike trails.
