Ravenshoe trail work and History

This Sunday Oct. 30  we are building new board walk and elevated skinnys on both Big Meany and Stinky as well as trail maintenance on other trails. Chris Reid - one of the Ravenshoe originals put together this history of Ravenshoe. Fun times - I am sure many of you remember the double teeter-totter.

if a tree falls on a rider, will anyone hear their screams?

The Durham Forest trail closure is for the safety of all involved, the forestry operators and the general public. Trespassing into the tree felling and buffer zone hampers and lengthens the closure. Which will only lead greater measures being considered to ensure the safe operations of normal forest activity. Please stay out and inform others that their selfish actions will hurt the general community and will have trails closed longer, “much longer”. The logging will generate revenue for the Forest which will be put back into the forest; re-foresting with species native to the area.

Durham Forest Fall trail build!

It's time to rally the troops. Please share this post and let's make this the biggest and best trail build to date. Please let us know if you are coming, so that we can organize for the numbers and buy enough food for the BBQ. Sign up at or comment on the post that you are coming. Did I mention that there is a newly designed, very cool t-shirt for each volunteer. Terry & the trail team.
