When rain falls on hillsides, after the palnts have all gotten a drink, the water continues to flow down the hill as dipersed sheets--called SHEET FLOW. A trail with grade reversals and outsloped tread encourages water to continue sheeting across the trail--NOT down it. Grade reversals require very little maintence.
Here is a picture of a textbook example of proper trail design and construction on a hillside at Camp Vits.
