Oh itís a good use of resources....the visitor noís will increase.Now they can take a long walk or ride through the tall forests with creeks to drink from in summer.Itís also firefighting infra structure .I wonder if they are thinking of opening it to vehicles .Round loop from Lake Mt to Mt Margaret.

Ubiquitous Steve: I wonder if they are planning to open it for traffic?With itís management gates in it provides a nice enjoyable wander on a well aligned gentle sloping road .I think I like it with no cars .....just my bikes.
Perhaps with LM getting very pro active about courting the Mtn Bike visitation dollar in green season, maybe they have raised a hue and cry to DEWLP to fix the UT rd. so that the Mtn Bikers and hikers have more options.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: DEWLP have worked wonders. All huge trees have been removed. In fact I scarcely saw a twig on the carriage ways! With a proper Low dump of snow the UT rd. could be XC skiable from end to end :).

Ubiquitous Steve: We might be able to suggest the dozer comes back to civilization via Boundary Track!With UT Rd cleared they now have a really good route for hikers,management/fire vehicles,and mountain bikes......it is a really good route and provides good access into a wonderful forest with gullies and creeks and large trees! So they removed those monster logs and the one we scrambled around the root ball of? Excellent.....good to see the DSE doing wonderful works!

The whole of the Upper Taggerty Track from end to end has been mechanically cleared. It is a thing of wonder!. The Keppel's hut 4 x 4 track from Upper Taggerty track junction to the hut itself is closed and being bulldozed, the shoulders of the track are being flailed and all fallen timber has been mechanically cut and removed from the carriageway . It is amazing!

The Snowy Hill track from Camberville is of interest to me. I am coming to scout that out ASAP.

Monday 5th. The website has finally changed to say that it's open from the 3rd. No mention of having to book to go up. Only the toilets are open. Nothing else.

teckel: The reason that they want people to book to go up is for contact tracing.
What I do in the Yarra Ranges N.P. for recreation is my business. The N.P. is not within the resort boundaries.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: We will go up there to LM eventually via Keppel's hut . It has been windy so there will be trees down along the track and power tools will necessary. The Long Heath Track needs some attention too.

teckel: no one can actually book. So, no one can go.
A sub alpine XC ski resort that has in effect banned people all year round :-0. That will keep infrastructure maintenance costs down won't it?

teckel: Not so simple though. Theoretically, all non-metro people can go, but they must book in prior to going there. But if the website hasn't been updated, no one can actually book. So, no one can go.
Yeah...thatís a bit of a worry!

3/10/20 - 3:53pm
Ubiquitous Steve: Well hopefully some folk can go for a wander,or ride a bike or just sit and enjoy themselves.

Lake Mountain is due to re-open to the public today. Yet, the website says it's still closed. I'm confused.

teckel: Just a reminder guys, this is the Lake Mountain trip reports thread. There is a chat thread - Link and a Mt Margaret thread - Link
True....my apologies....A Mt Bike Rd from Lake Mt end down Upper Taggerty Rd towards Keppels and out via Mt Margaret Gap could be an enjoyable family plan....
