K-Loop Update

posted May 18, 2011, 8:34 PM by Manawatu MTBClub
Another visit to K-Loop has identified that About Time and Ewok are both badly affected by windfall and impassable.  About Time has 10 trees down in the gully by the first bridge.  There are about 50 trees blocking the trail up the steep face with the switchbacks. Do not enter this area as there are a number of trees hung up which are dangerous.

Until logging crews have removed windfall trees, it is too dangerous to attempt to open up these trees again.  Windfall trees may be removed soon if a hauler and crew can be found to remove them, but it could be sometime before we have access again.

The good news is that we have flagged three new trails in the newly logged areas and will start work on clearing these trails over winter, so that there are new trails next summer.
