The water gutter is located in the valley of Rakytovo near the village of Dolný Harmanec - about 12 km from Banská Bystrica. The length of the gutter is almost 2.5 km and in 2000, it was declared a national cultural monument. The whole construction of the water gutter is made of wood - spruce and fir, without using any other (eg metal) material.

It was built on Rakytovo Brook, probably already in the 19th century, and was used for rafting straightened wood. Over the years, it has been severely damaged and has remained partially inoperable. However, thanks to the initiative of the City of Banska Bystrica and the efforts of the workers of the City Forests, it was renovated and solemnly presented to the public in 2007.

There is a marked hiking trail and an asphalt road around the gutter too.
