Re: Geeky Trail Building Thread.

Those drains are super cool.

How often do they clog and what tool is best to gut em out after they do?

Re: Geeky Trail Building Thread.

Yeah but she isn’t into it really. It’s a bummer because she could be pretty good at it too. I need to get her and one or a few of her friends together and take them out riding. Generally, having her peers there changes everything.

THey are a pliable pvc material.  We harden the up and down slope sides with rock to ensure least resistance of any material water moves.  We also rake leaves upslode and down slope in late fall to remove organic material to help water flow.  

One of the first things we do in spring is address drainages.  Again raking upslope and down to clear debris jams.  Often the force of water clears the drainages but if clogged the best tool seems to be the butt end of a rake...

 Nice. I imagine soil type creates maintenance variables. I was thinking a traditional garden hoe might be good for cleaning the drain.
