Lysterfield Mountain Bike Trail Closure Extension

Upon assessment of the Mountain Bike trail network at Lysterfield Park, Parks Victoria has decided to close all Mountain Bike Trails until December 3rd. The trails have been assessed to be in an ‘unsafe condition’, due to heavily degraded surface integrity, major drainage issues (compounding rainfall), tree hazards and areas of high soil instability. This trail condition is also reflective of a major storm event on Thursday 28th October, experienced at Lysterfield Park, resulting in many tree hazards and drainage issues throughout the trail network. 

This decision has not been made lightly but is necessary in order to maintain visitor safety. Parks Victoria will endeavour to do all it can to open the trails as soon as possible and when they are in a safe condition.
