The weather rollercoaster continues. Coondoo is open again, however Superbowl, Butterfly and Cabbage Tree Lane remain closed as they are still quite water logged. Coondoo does still have some wetter areas but should continue to dry out ... the situation may change if significant rain falls again.
While the SCUM trails have previously stood up reasonably well to the recent severe weather there is no doubt they have been 'punished' and some of the recent repair work may be undone (fingers crossed it isn't too bad). There is a great deal of repair work and further drainage to do. This is hard yakka and takes significant time. We are getting there...but we need your help. Further trail maintenance / trail clearing times are happening and we encourage you to attend to assist 'your club'.
Coondoo is our first priority as SCUM will be hosting some major events there in the coming months. Plus, Coondoo is the first trail on our list for the major upgrade work on all our trials and trailheads following our successful application for the Commonwealth Government's Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grant. Therefore our other trails - Superbowl, Butterfly and Cabbage Tree Lane - haven't received the attention they deserve of late and we have to ask for your patience and understanding as we work through our priorities.
