Our friends at Friends of Belmont Regional Park are having an opening event for the new picnic area at the bottom of the Bull Run on Sunday, 13th April. Please beware when riding down Bull Run as there are going to be more that the average number of walkers on the trail during the day. There will be signage at the top and bottom to remind users that this is a duel use trail, so please be considerate of other trail users.
Happy riding (and walking)

Logging has once again commenced and this has affected Old Coach Rd once again. This road will be closed during: 7am till 5pm, Monday to Friday until the logging operation is completed or until otherwise notified by GWRC.
The Hutt News has incorrectly quoted that this track was built with financial assistance from the council – This is actually incorrect!
The Bull run was built entirely from volunteers with no financial assistance at all!
What should have been printed was: GWRC are to fully fund a new uphill replacement for “Danzig” in the new year! (to be named 4 degrees)- This is to be constructed from the Danzig forest logging revenue.
