Please note the News item on the CORC site (corc.asn.au) regarding logging operations Feb/Mar 2010.

Do you have more information?

If you've ridden here lately please add a more recent report. This will be useful even if the condition is the same as updates expire after 30 days.
Please do not post comments with such information - post a new update with the link above.

Rode Sparrow Hill on Saturday. The area accessible for riding has been reduced significantly by the logging operations with the northern half of the area now closed. This means the red loop is now much shorter. Gems like Spiderweb loop, heavy cow loop and others are closed. To make a decent length ride we had to ride the redirected red route and then the blue route. The sliver lining to this cloud is that you get to run Bobsled twice...

Apart from that, the trails were in great condition and the trail fairies have been out making sure everything links up well with some new trails added as a result.

Meanwhile, apparently the whole area is under threat from a proposed new road?

@rirkby: Nice to know, but...

... can you please post that in a new status update that will supersede this one? With this link (copy of that on the left):

Add a Trail Status Update.

Cheers,
