Bantry Bay
Amber/Some Issues

Serrata is clear of fallen trees. After the heavy rain last night the top of the track is very wet with running water and puddles. The botton of the track is damp. National Parks has no closed areas.
Might be good to give it a few days to dry. Watch out for the leaches although most of them are now stuck to my legs.

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.

Hi Daisy,
I was cutting grass at Ferretville yesterday afternoon (2 Feb) and although I did not use any of the MBT tracks around Bantry Bay, Forestville Park and some of the walking tracks are very sodden with puddles. I also did not see any riders, which is strange. Guess it will be very wet.
Although the NPWS website does not note the tracks as closed.

There is a large tree down at the Currie Road fire trail entrance. If I get home on time tomorrow I'll go hack off some limbs so it's easier to get through. Otherwise I walked the Firetrail and Natural Bridge trail on Sunday and while wet enough to pick up a few leeches it was starting to drain.

Probably OK to ride today (Thursday)
