Monkey Trail Diversion UPDATE

* * *    For latest update - see here   * * * 

From today (Monday 22nd), the FC are extending the diversion as the harvesting contractors are making swift progress and have now using the same track as the existing diversion. This will turn into a bigger mud bath than it already is with the forwarder making deep ruts.


The new diversion will be from Klondike Bridge, up Rainbow Valley, to the start of The Original Monkey as shown by the purple line on the map above. This is likely to be for 4-6 weeks. Please follow the signs for your own safety.

  2. Yes, unfortunately everything left of the purple line is closed for safety reasons. It's a working forest so we can't control what and when felling occurs.

  3. Any idea when this diversion is scheduled to be removed?

  4. I've asked the FC for an update but we expect that repairs will be needed after work as finished so it's likely to be the New Year before the full trail is open. I'll post as soon as we know more.
