Three Hills Singletrack - first hill

Sunday, 25-Jan 2015 @ 5:43pm

Hill one is again a single track.  We closed the final section this weekend. Very satisfying. Pics to follow.

The new trail has handled another deluge very well. Using rainfall figures from adjacent suburbs, Nerang has had a 150mm, a 200mm and a 230+ event since New Year. Other top-ups have taken us over 600mm. 155mm is the average for January on the Gold Coast. So far this weekend riders have been infrequent, which is a sign of growing trail respect.  However, everything is good to go, with only some of the usual suspects being boggy in places.

This is how the new first hill track looked on Saturday afternoon. Rainfall ceased about 9 hours earlier

It is so good to see grasses and other vegetation already sprouting from closures only a week old. Good weather for growing it is

This is part of one traverse we closed but the after view is looking back the other way from farther along

Here's some more of the closure down to the new trail line. Note our method of restoring the original slope of the terrain
