Cutting trail "Nicks"

The idea is to allow water to slide off the side of the track and dissipate into the undergrowth, avoiding either having puddles form or allowing the water to gain momentum and carry away trail surface soil.

Here we're looking to direct the water away before it can gain momentum on the next descent. There were already signs of a channel forming further down, stripping supporting soil away from the side of the babyheads section (out of frame to the right of this photo).
