1. Following January 2013 Bundaleer Forest bushfire, Forestry SA advises that the Heysen Trail through the Forest remains closed until further notice due to danger of tree falls, logging and heavy vehicle traffic. Logging is expected to continue for several months. In the meantime, walkers may bypass the danger area by using Browns Track, from Gate BG1 on Neindorf Road (GR 710 159) to the Heysen western exit from the forest (GR 703 138). No other forest access is permitted. This re-route has now been marked with trail arrows (20 June 2013).
2. Walkers are also advised that when walking westward from Bundaleer Forest a new fence has been installed at GR 691 124, SE of the spring. Until a stile is erected, walkers should use the gate about 200m SE of the trail at approx GR 693 123 (towards the forest).
