Report from the Chair
It has been a big year! The roll out of the Master Track plan has really picked up. Initially we have focused on finishing off a core network of tracks to get everyone around the park. This year that meant:
Completing the grade 2 track network – tick
Opening up the Southwestern ridge to more riders – tick
Completing the grade 3 and grade 4 runs from the peak to the carpark – currently underway with the extensions to SWIGG and to Starfish.
The aim was to complete the tracks which would provide a solid base for the riders we are increasingly seeing in the park – a lot more people who are new to riding, lots of younger riders and a look more people in the park for the first time.
The conservation work program runs like a well-oiled machine with planting and pest control continuing to re-establish the native forest through-out the park. Some exciting projects have been started with a plan to re-establish the forest around Zac’s starting to be implemented – more on this below.
