Rebuilding Fox Creek Bike Park. Help us to Build Back Better!

Join us on the journey to rebuild Fox Creek Bike Park

Fox Creek Bike Park is currently closed to all visitors.

Significant Commercial harvesting and logging is occurring within the reserve until March 2021.

The section of forest commonly known as Fox Creek was severely affected by the December 2019 bushfires and is now surrounded by burnt pine plantation and native forest. Due to the potential of falling trees and branches, the area is unsafe for public visitation. Some sections of the Heysen and Mawson Trails, which pass through this area of forest, are also closed until further notice. Temporarily the Mawson Trail has been re-routed onto Croft Road and is open for users.

ForestrySA is working to identify and re-establish trails as early as possible. ForestrySA acknowledges temporary closure of the Fox Creek Bike Park trails and mountain bike precinct is causing significant impact on visitor access. For your own safety, do not enter fire-affected forest areas.

Fox Creek Bike Park Fire Recovery Program

ForestrySA‚Äôs Fox Creek Bike Park is closed as a result of damage sustained in recent bushfires. This section of forest contains the Mawson Network Trails, which is home to a significant network mountain bike trails. Severely affected by fire, the mountain bike precinct is now surrounded by burnt pine plantation and native forest. Due to the potential of falling trees and branches, the area is unsafe for public visitation, including Fox Creek’s sections of the Heysen and Mawson Trails. For your own safety, do not enter fire-affected forest areas.

ForestrySA acknowledges temporary closure of the Fox Creek Bike Park, trails and mountain bike precinct is causing significant impact on visitor access. Work is underway with South Australian Government agencies, Forest User Groups ,clubs and community groups to develop a workable recovery and operational plan for the area to re-build Fox Creek Bike Park.
