Fernhill Loop Track closure

The Southland times  and the ODT (links below) recently reported that the popular Fernhill Loop will be closed.  The decision was made some time ago but has only just been made official by the council.  The Queenstown mountain bike club spoke to QLDC about this in February and they assured us at that time that the Queenstown Bike Park (QBP) side of the trail would remain open but not maintained by the council.  This has effectively been a community maintained track for the last few years anyway with the guys from Outside Sports among others doing quite a bit of work on it. Hopefully we will be able to keep the QBP end going like this until we can get the money to link it up to the wider trail network around Queenstown.  If you think this trail needs a bit of love contact the QMTBC and we'll try and get a volunteer crew together for a bit of a maintenance session.
