Due to delays with the contractors starting the thinning operations, the diversion will start Monday 5th March. The Monkey Trail will be diverted from waymarker post M4, located at Five Ways near the golf course to the start of the Upper Cliff climb (M5) along the fire roads.
The block of forest between M4 and M5 will be subject to thinning works for 6 weeks. Large and pointy machinery will be operating in this area so, for your safety, please obey any and all signs in this area.
The good news is that following the clean up of the area after the thinning works, we'll be able to work on the "wiggly" bit of trail you can see on the map between M4 and M5. Those of you who can remember that far back, we held a number of Big Build Days working on this section which is over 1km of descending.
