The Department of Environment and Conservation has advised that effective May 2013 a diversion is in place on the Munda Biddi Trail in the Lane Poole Reserve south of Dwellingup due to logging operations. Whilst every attempt is made to keep this blog up to date with the state of play on the Munda Biddi Trail riders of the Trail should also check the Department of Conservation Trail conditions and updates page before riding the Trail.
Diversion – Lane Poole Reserve
The Department of Environment and Conservation has advised that a 10 km section of the Munda Biddi Trail in the Lane Poole Reserve has been closed due to logging operations. We can add this to the closures that have come about due to mining operations now … soon it will be the new Munda Biddi Trail! The Trail has been diverted with a 11.5 km diversion first to the east of the Murray River and then crossing over to ride the west bank. The diversion will stay in place until it is considered safe to reopen the closed section of the Trail.
From what I can gather the diversion when heading south leaves Nanga Road to the north of the Murray River Bridge turning west on Del Park Road, then River Road pass the Chuditch Camp Site before reconnecting with the Munda Biddi at The Stringers Campground.
With reference to the RideWithGPS map above, if you zoom in and switch to the OSM Cycle view you get a better feel for the diversion.
A copy of the diversion map is available for download from my Dropbox.
