Storm Arwen Aftermath

Storm Arwen happened over 26th and 27th November 2021 and hit the local forest pretty badly. A lot of roads were closed for days and trails have been blocked by fallen timber for even longer and still remain blocked weeks later.

Trail blockages have ranged from light (like a single fallen tree trunk across the trail as in the photo above) to complete blockages (with full canopy blocking and no way around) where no amount of bike limbo or parkour is going to get you through.

Since the storm, the rangers and forestry crews have been busy working things out and getting the trails open.

Unfortunately it’s also been used to clear fell some areas which has destroyed some of the trails such as “Escape from LA” which was one of my favourites – time will tell if the logging machines have left anything that can be salvaged.
