Is Summer day valley open? 12-Jun-2015 At 11:27:49 AM BA
When the main development of SDV began it was fairly recently after a bushfire. The bush regrew where people were not walking. As the area grew in popularity people became concerned that the bush was being flattened by the feet of many climbers, this was not the case.
To reduce the number of tracks, branches/scrub etc were placed on some of the tracks to "guide" people, after the fires and before the regrowth you could see where you were going and knew which track to take. After the regrowth, when the bush was 3-4m high, it wasn't as easy to know where you were being taken by some of the tracks and 'duplicates' did exist.
