We'll try keep this updated as often as we can but some days we might not be able to inspect the trails. Use common sense about wet trails - read the Wet Trail Closures article for more details.
Reminder about rule of thumb: 10mm of rain normally needs 6-8 hours of sunlight and drying time. Check rainfall data for Black Weir (Douglas, Ross River Dam Pallarenda on BOM website.)
