Last call for feedback on Victoria’s top mountain bike spot

Mount Work survey measures interest in Durrance Lake swimming, Hartland bike trails

It’s last call for the Capital Regional District’s online survey to help shape the Mount Work Management Plan as it closes on Oct. 11.

Mount Work is 729 hectares and includes Durrance Lake, the popular swimming and fishing hole, as well as the popular Mount Work-Hartland mountain biking area, and world-class hiking trails accessible from Ross Durrance Road.

It’s the first dedicated management plan for the park that was established in 1970 though several amenities were developed.

Among the concerns for the South Island Mountain Biking Society is a focus on replacing about 4.6 kilometres of trails lost to the landfill expansion. SIMBS also seek an expansion of the general boundary that limits mountain biking trails.

The survey asks users about the potential of loop networks and connecting trails. It also has a strong focus on the appetite for respecting culturally and environmentally sensitive areas.
