FUEL REDUCTION BURNING OPERATIONS – AUTUMN 2013
DEC conducts a program of fuel reduction burning operations during spring and autumn each year. These burns are undertaken for a variety of reasons including property protection, fuel reduction and biodiversity management.
These burns are carefully planned however they may cause some disruption to cyclists. Where fuel reduction burns impact directly on the Trail temporary diversions will be put in place including temporary campsites where necessary. Fuel reduction burning operations are dependent on appropriate weather conditions and, as such, dates for operations are not available in advance.
The following sections of Trail may be affected by fuel reduction burning operations during autumn 2013. For your safety, follow all signs, diversions and instructions from DEC staff.
