Members of the Forrest Mountain bike club met with DELWP at yesterday's trail maintenance meeting. Discussions focussed on the viability of reopening "Red Carpet" and "Follow the dog" in time for the school holidays, amongst a few other items.
Given the seriously heavy rain and flooding in the area in the last few days it's been decided that "Red Carpet" and "Follow the dog" will remain closed for a little while longer.
An inspection by several club members found that there are several quite boggy sections at the moment.
Up until Thursday of last week it looked like these trails were all set to reopen. Its a sad but an environmentally necessary decision.
All the other trails remain open however.
