Providing sustainable recreational trails is one of the most effective ways how to manage the interface between silvicultural activities, nature protection and recreation. Trail networks for MTB and share-use can substantially decrease the problems arising from increased visitor numbers to forested nature areas. They do so in three main areas. They provide users with desirable experience, they establish visitor flows through landscapes and they provide effective risk management solution.
