All mountain bike trails closed

Single Trail Network Closure 
Due to recent heavy rainfall, a wet winter and significant rider traffic, all mountain bike trails are severely impacted with very muddy conditions and deteriorating track condition. To prevent further damage, all single track mountain bike trails are temporarily closed. Trails will be re-opened following maintenance and drier conditions which we anticipate will be Monday 1 November 2021. Lake Circuit Trail and all fire trails will remain open.
These closures ensure visitors remain safe in the park, and protect the trail network from unnecessary degradation. Thank you for respecting the closures and we hope to see you on the trails soon.

Aneurysm Trail
Aneurysm Trail has significant damage in sections and will require repairs, to return the trail to its graded (Black Diamond) condition before reopening. These repairs will also need time to settle. As a result, the Aneurysm Trail will remain closed until 1 November 2021 once works have been completed.
