Whian Whian to reopen, but Mt Warning off limits

MOST walking trails in Whian Whian State Forest trashed by high winds from ex-tropical cyclone Oswald recently are expected to be reopened this weekend.

However, other areas such as Wollumbin National Park, which includes Mt Warning, Nightcap National Park and the Border Ranges National Park are still closed and considered extremely dangerous.

National Parks and Wildlife Service Tweed and Kyogle Area Manager, Damien Hofmeyer, said numerous walkers were putting themselves and park workers in danger by entering closed areas.

Mr Hofmeyer said dangers included unstable trees, fallen trees being held up vines, unstable ground, slippery areas and loose rocks.

Helicopter rescues were particularly dangerous in those areas because rotor wash could bring down wind-damaged trees, he said.
