Flagstaff Creek Track bridge no longer available
Wednesday 30th January 2013
Due to large wind blown trees and the threat of further wind damage the bridge crossing Flagstaff Creek at the end of the track is no longer safe to use and is permanently closed. Please note that this track can therefore no longer be walked as a circuit.
Horse riding in our forests
Tuesday 4th December 2012
We welcome horse riders to use our Flagstaff forest outside working hours. Flagstaff forest has nearly 40 km of roads winding through varied terrain throughout the forest. Horse riding in other forests (except Ross Creek plantation) may also be possible - subject to operations - please check with City Forests first and obtain a permit before taking your horse into forests other than Flagstaff. Unfortunately horse riding access to Ross Creek forest is permanently closed because of the difficult access for horses and the very limited area suitable for riding. The forest is used extensively for recreational mountain biking, walking and running, so we encourage horse riders to make use of the great opportunities for riding that are available in Flagstaff forest. Note that there may be vehicles and other people using any forest road at any time. Please stay out of any areas sign-posted "Operational Area" at all times.
