I was wondering that as well, my only answer: The road coming in from the left is the official Elbe cycling-way "R1" and just descended from a bridge over the Mulde river, the cycling-way continues as a fully asphalt-road on the right side all the way through the forest. The road entering on the right was a local road for farming and forest-ranger vehicles. It's a dirt road continuing on the left side into the forest.
Fun fact: About a mile and a half into the forest, the paths cross again, cyling-way continuing left, forest track going further on the right hand side.

I guess it's just an example of German bureaucracy when it comes to building things. The R1 cycling-way has been built sometimes in the 1990's I guess and that dirt road was most likely there much longer, in order to avoid any bureaucracy obstacles they might've went for those crossings.
We have a whole city built using that logic - the national capital, Canberra!

Is it any wonder that our political masters always seem confused ...

Like the universe at large, in.Canberra the shortest distance between two points is a curve. However, in Canberra one can never retrace one's path in a car. It just doesn't work like that!

Went for a bike ride in the hills of Little Glenshee near Perth (Scotland). Some of the tracks are pretty rough but a mountain bike makes short work of them.

Those last 2 above images are polar opposites!

I live deep in the woods and the second image is typical of around here. The first image is something I’ve never seen in person - a landscape totally void of trees.

Nice job both of you! I guess it was just coincidence that those images were posted one after another but it sure makes one look and think.

Northern Argentina back in the day when it was actually possible to ride somewhere i.e. not that long ago.

Same location as my previous shot but facing in the other direction.

I wish I grabbed better pictures of my drive up and down Pikes Peak, but ya know...had to pay attention to the road so I didn’t drive off the side of a mountain.
