Weather

Riders are advised to check the forecast prior to their departure. Plan your rides for cooler periods of the year, avoiding the hot summer months. If any severe weather warnings have been issued, Parks and Wildlife recommends staying off the Trail until the severe weather has passed. Risks include falling branches and flooding. Expect logs and flooding across the Trail for some time afterwards.

Fire safety

Before commencing a ride check the fire danger rating. It is not recommended to ride on days of very high fire danger rating or above due to the risk of bushfire. Parks and Wildlife may close trails and parks on such days.

Campfires

Seasonal campfire restrictions and prohibitions apply which will be noted in the Warnings section above. Use fuel stoves for cooking.

Prescribed Burns

Parks and Wildlife conducts a year-round program of prescribed burning. These burns are undertaken primarily for property protection, fuel reduction and biodiversity management.

These burns are carefully planned however they may cause some disruption to walkers. Where prescribed burns impact on the Trail, closures and diversions are implemented to ensure the safety of riders, including temporary camp sites where necessary. These will remain in place until the original Trail alignment has been declared safe.

For your safety follow all signs, diversions and instructions from Parks and Wildlife staff and other emergency personnel.

Prescribed burns are dependent on appropriate weather conditions and, as such, burning dates are not available in advance.

During 2017/2018 the following prescribed burns may directly affect the Trail with closures/diversions in place. Smoke may be seen from the Trail from other nearby prescribed burns that may indirectly impact the Trail.

Water Supply

Water tanks are provided at camp sites but these are rain-fed and it is not possible to guarantee the amount or quality of the water available. It is essential that riders keep an emergency supply of drinking water as back-up and use available water sparingly.

All water should be treated before drinking by boiling for at least one minute, mechanical filtration or chemical treatment.

Vehicles on the Trail

The Trail uses many existing gravel and bitumen roads and vehicle tracks that are open to the motoring public. Cyclists are reminded that normal traffic rules apply. Please be aware of other vehicles at all times and always exercise caution.

Vehicle Access and Supply Drop Locations

Riders are reminded that recommended vehicle access points to the Trail are marked on the maps as red car symbols. These vehicle access points are recommended as they have been assessed for safety/visibility and space to pull over. Riders are permitted to access the Trail at other points as long as they obey road rules and do not enter Disease Risk Areas.

Groups on the Trail

Parks and Wildlife recommends cyclists check the Groups on the Trail section below to see if any groups have advised us of their intention to stay overnight at any Munda Biddi Trail camp sites.
