Blackwall Mountain 'severely damaged', says Trust

The top of Blackwall Mountain has been "severely damaged" by bike riders, according to the Killcare Wagstaffe Trust.

In its latest newsletter, it has also described damage by bike riders in Bouddi National Park.

"At present, bike riders are permitted to ride on fire trails in National Parks," said Trust president Mr David Legge.

"They are not permitted to ride on walking tracks or through the bush.

"Unfortunately, some riders are ignoring these restrictions in Bouddi NP.

"For example, a riding path has been carved out between the Hardy's Bay fire trail and the Hardy's Bay Club.

"This has involved cutting through tree roots, constructing ramps, laying down artificial turf - all things that are clearly not compatible with the conservation aims of National Parks.

"Off trail bike tracks have also been carved out along the Daley's Point trail towards the Aboriginal carvings.

"The Trust would like to hear from anyone who has contacts with the bike riding community so that we can build a dialogue with the riders and address these problems.

"We would also like to hear about any other unauthorised bike tracks in the area. ("

The committee will also be writing to National Parks to urge that they repair the damage and enforce the restrictions that are in place.
