Warning to users of Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area


Mountain bikers, horse riders and bushwalkers have been urged to take extreme care in the Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area following the discovery of wire hazards on a track.

The Parks and Wildlife Service has removed the hazards and erected warning signs.
PWS Northern Regional manager Chris Colley said Parks staff were investigating the matter with Tasmania Police and will continue to check tracks over the weekend.

"It is recommended that people refrain from riding in the reserve - particularly night time riders - until such time as it can be confirmed that all hazards have been removed," Mr Colley said.

"This is an extremely dangerous situation and anyone who sees any person erecting such hazards should report it immediately to police."
