TRAIL UPDATE 

UPDATE  22/09/2022

****** A2O TRAIL CLOSURES ******

We're nearly there..... but not quite!  Just two sections still remain closed while we complete repairs.  

Two sections remain closed.  These are:  Section 5 - Sailors Cutting to Benmore Dam, and part of Section 8 from Elephant Rocks to Prydes Gully Road.

Please navigate closely along the State Highway for these sections.

 

Section 1 Hayman Road is still having repairs undertaken following the July/August storm damage. Deep large metal on it is currently making it difficult to ride.  Finer material will be laid once repairs are completed.  Please be careful in the meantime. 

Open sections are wet and soft and should be ridden with extreme caution. Please be mindful that the trail still has washouts and bumpy bits, and the surface is rough and uneven in places.  Ride with extreme care and be prepared to get off and walk bits.

To avoid complacency there will NOT be ‘caution’ signs put up everywhere – only where high levels of risk/danger exist.  Please make allowances for extended ride times.

We would appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to reopen the trail and complete repairs and resilience work.
