Forestry SA has closed access to the Heysen Trail in the vicinity of Cudlee Creek, with the affected section shown on this exclusion zone map. It covers sections of the following maps: Heysen Trail Sheet Maps 2B & 2C and
Southern Guidebook Map 3.6.
The exclusion zone commences at the eastern exit of Montacute Conservation Park (Grid Ref 983 377) and concludes when the trail leaves Forestry property at Snake Gully Rd (GR 014 402). All walkers are advised to avoid the area . Trail closure signs have been erected by Forestry SA.
Unfortunately the excluded area includes Grandpa’s campsite, which is now closed. The rainwater tank is contaminated with ash and until it is replaced, the water is not fit for consumption. Due to the extent of the fire zone and the danger of falling trees, we do not anticipate the campsite being available for several months.
