PARK UPDATE for the weekend 14/15th
Inspections were carried out today ( FRIDAY 13th) and the park will remain CLOSED.
Thank You very much for your patience and understanding. There are still some very damp and soft spots throughout the park and if they are not ridden will have the best possible chance to dry out
. There have been riders that have decided bugger the closed signs and taken a ride and the damage just from a couple of bikes is very evident in the soft spots.
We cant stress highly enough that if the trails are not damaged they will dry faster. and we will be able to open the park quicker. The soft areas that mush up take a solid week alone to harden again and the ruts then still remain.
Just about every creek crossing in the park is running. Waterfalls is exactly that with water venting from the mountain everywhere. The Nard Crossing is still at least a half meter deep.
We will keep everyone posted and re-open as soon as practical.
In the meantime if you have some time to spare tomorrow morning for a couple hours, sing out. We would like some help to clear some lower trail drains and to try and drain water pooling on the trails. small spades or solid rakes are welcome. Meet at the Container at 0800.
Help the trail fairies maintain the trails you ride.
