The Department of Environment and Conservation has announced that effective April 2013 (a rather delayed announcement given the diversion was in place when I rode the Waterous Trail in October 2012) a long-term diversion will be in place on the Munda Biddi Trail south of the Bidjar Ngoulin Campsite in the Lane Poole Reserve (south of Dwellingup).
The Department of Environment and Conservation has diverted the Munda Biddi Trail from the southern 5.9 km of the King Jarrah Form and put in place a 4.4 km realignment. The diversion means the trail has been moved to the west and now follows Nanga Road before rejoining the Trail on the King Jarrah Form.
This diversion is in place due to the never-ending expansion of Alcoa’s mining operations. I experienced this diversion when I rode the Waterous Trail in October 2012. This photo taken in October 2012 provides an indication of the “permanency” of the diversion.
A copy of the diversion map is available for download from my Dropbox.
