Coondoo Vandalism Update

Following the recent vandalism, the trail crew have repaired the bridge just before Cyprus Hill and marked out all other affected areas; these all have 'B' line alternates. Unfortunately it will take us a while to 'fix' everything. Please be aware and take care ...

NSW Police are aware, as are Visit NSW State Forests (Forestry Corporation) who will increase their Ranger checks in this part of the Forest.

 

 

Coondoo Vandalism

A note and photo from a fellow rider has some sad news...

"... someone has destroyed all the bridges that gap the creeks, the old wooden pallet that jumps the fallen log and the new north shore style bridge just before Ziggy zaggy.  The bridges down before the creeks are particularly sketchy as they are around blind corners ... we've put a few logs up to try and warn riders."

 

The trail crew will be out to sort it when we can ... thanks to local rider Phil Laycock for advising us via Facebook

 

 

Fire Ban

Forestry Corporation have advised that a solid fuel fire ban is in force right now and until further notice.  Only gas fires / BBQ's are permitted.

27/04/2017: Postponed - Hazard Reduction Burn

The proposed burn of Currambene State Forest has now been postponed to Autumn 2018 ... obviously there will be no impact at this time.  Let's keep riding.

 

22/04/2017: HAZARD REDUCTION BURN

Forestry Corp are planning to do a Hazard Reduction Burn of the Currambene State Forest during late April / early May 2017 - the exact timing depends on the weather situation.  Road signage and forestry closures will be in place.  This is expected to impact the SCUM Superbowl Trail and potentially our Butterfly Trail.  Access to these trails during this time will be compromised.  FURTHER DETAILS WILL BE ADVISED ASAP

A top effort by the trail crew on the bridge just entering Cyprus Hill ... it was a case of out with the old and in with the new. All set for Round 1 of the XC series at Coondoo ...
OK the Simon and Garfunkel pun on the side bar of  the website's home page is a bit old school; perhaps we need some younger web moderators ;)
