    Staying safe

    Take care

    • Check weather forecast and Park Alerts to see if any closures are current before heading out into the park.
    • Do not enter the forest in strong wind conditions—blackbutt, flooded gum and other trees growing here are prone to dropping branches. Strong wind increases the risk of injury.
    • Stay on the shared trails and obey all safety and warning signs.
    • Carry a mobile phone and first-aid kit. Be aware that mobile phone reception can be unreliable in this area.
    • Do not walk or ride alone.
    • Explore in daylight hours only.
    • Wear adequate sun and insect protection and carry enough drinking water.
    • Plan ahead—let a responsible person know where you are going and when you expect to return.
    • Bike riders: carry a basic repairs kit.

    Ride safely:

    • Always wear a helmet.
    • Slow down and warn other trail users when approaching them. Follow the give-way code.
    • Plan ahead, ride within your ability and according to trail conditions.
    • Avoid riding in large groups—keep groups to fewer than 12.
    • Avoid riding during and after rain when trails are soft, wet and muddy.
    • Always expect to find someone or something on the track around the next corner. You may encounter other riders, wildlife, cattle and natural obstacles such as fallen trees and water-eroded tracks.
    • Bike riders: avoid skidding and sliding around turns and downhill to prevent collisions.
