Additional information for this *new map*

Terrain:  Moderately steep gully spur with complex vegetation of pines, native bush and exotic trees and a complex track network.

(1) There are out-of-bounds areas shown in olive for residential houses, and purple out-of-bounds vacant land. There is a forbidden route shown by purple crosses.

(2) The parklands are a mountain bike park. Be prepared to get out of the way quickly for fast downhill mountain bikers.

(3) There are some rough open areas with green stripes which is slow knee-high grass.

(4) The area can be very slippery especially when wet.
