    Any update on the conditions on Skyline – Handy Andy onwards – would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Went there today after hearing that everythings open and the diversions are still active 😕
    The trail is closed between waypoints 56 and 66 which is 4 sections of singletrack.
    The diversions lead to forest roads that would be better suited to mud wrestling than riding.

    rode it on saturday, one section would be better named ” The Bog of Doom “. might be a better option to do 2 short routes instead.

    Check the FC web site. I don’t think they have taken some of the diversion sign down – all the bits of singletrack are open, only handy andy sort of semi-open. Rode all the sections last sunday not sure why people seem to be having such a problem!

    So any diversion signs are bogus and the original “official” route is all open/ridable ?

    Exactly, I can’t remember any of the “proper” skyline looking like that,

    Look at the FC web site. See what is open and go ride. Its not that the signs are bogus I just dont think they have been taken down since other bits have been reopened.

    So do you mean that an amended version of Skyline is open (which includes diversions) or that the original (as appears on the printed maps) version (with no diversions) is fully open ?

    If the former then yes, no one disputes that 🙂

    Those photos were taken shortly after the diversion signs around Handy Andy.
    The diversions signs continue regularly until the start of Deadwood. Granada and everything up to that Handy Andy section was open.
    When I rode Skyine 2 months ago there were diversions around the early sections as well but these have been removed.
    There are brand new signs talking of a trail closure on the 17th July for some motor event.
    You trying to say they decided to leave the others there cause they forgot to remove them?

    Skyline was mostly closed yesterday (16th) for a rally but there was FA signage about it in Glyncorrwg – all the signs there said fully open except a short section of Grand Canyon.

    Got to post 17 and got sent on a diversion to post 66. Very annoying, having carefully checked the closure notices on both the website and at the centre. Still had a great time but was really hoping to do Skyline before it closes for good.

    Agree the website states all is open as do the signs at Glyncorrwg but it looks very closed when you get to Handy Andy.

    My understanding is that the wind farm plans have been held up somewhere and it is unlikely that skyline will close in the near future.

    I’m going to wait for the FC to finish their work before attempting it again. Everything after that last diversion is rubbish riding particularly the Bog of Doom.
