Notice from DTV Chairman, Alan Grist:

“Sections of the Freeminers Red Trail will be CLOSED between 12th – 21st of August while Back on Track and the Dean Trail Volunteers do extension Building work to extend and revamp sections of the Trail.”

The long awaited extension is almost complete, and new features will mean the trail will be longer and more technical. The trail is due to close again around 28th August for work to be completed.
