Rich and I went for a run up Fernleigh Track this morning… I would recommend people gave it a wide berth for at least a couple of days.
I wore my trail shoes, which was quite appropriate, as there was a lot of debris all over the track.
There were a number of large and small trees down all over the track. We only went about 8km down the track (starting at the Adamstown end), so I am not sure what lies beyond that. The largest trees seemed to be down between the 4km and 6km mark. In some places they almost completely blocked the path. At times we had to go off track and go completely around the trees in order o get through safely. In a number of places the fallen trees had also taken out sections of the fence.
Anybody who heads out should exercise extreme caution around the trees in case they move. With the amount of water softening the ground from all the rain we had, it could still be dangerous for some time yet. I would wait until it has been cleaned up properly and all the fallen trees removed before heading out there again.
