IMPORTANT NOTICE TO DOG OWNERS
The management team at Bike Parks Ltd wishes to advise dog owners of a change in Dog Rules at the Woodhill Mountain Bike Park.
As of 1 January 2017 dogs will no longer be allowed to accompany riders in the trail network on Weekends and Public Holidays.
The reason for this decision is due to a number of reasons including
- an increase in near miss accidents involving dogs
- an overall increase in weekend rider numbers
- an increase in owners not picking up after their dogs in the trails and carpark area or having them under an acceptable amount of control in the forest
- an increase in owners losing track of their dogs in the forest and having to stay later to find them
We will continue to allow dogs into the trail network during weekdays only which will also be reconsidered on regular intervals. We would like to remind owners that dogs must remain on a leash in the carpark and then can be let off leash once you enter the trails as long as the dog is under full control. Please pick up after your dog.
Thank you for for your understanding
