We’ll be meeting just off the Wakehurst Parkway at the Curl Curl Creek fire trail at 8am this Saturday to continue our work on the single track. Please let me know if you are coming along so we can ensure we have enough hand tools for everyone.

10 tonnes of rock!

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

That's how much material was used last month to remediate a badly eroded section of the Manly Dam trail (8 tonnes of crushed sandstone and another 2 tonnes of flagging).
A small group of volunteers joined Trailcare for the first volunteer maintenance day at Manly Dam in more than 2yrs
The 3rd Saturday of each month is the new recurring date for volunteer maintenance at the Dam
Northern Beaches council and the rangers at the dam are supporting our sport by supplying material and hand tools for each of these days

St Ives sniggle

A can of worms about to be opened perhaps? But a few questions about the sniggles parallel with Mona Vale Rd between the Wild Flower Garden and Forest Way turn-off:
1. Are these trails legal?
2. Who is/are the landholder(s)
3. Who built these tracks?
4. If legal, can I help maintain them? If not, then I don't want to be caught trespassing!

Over to the brains trust...
