The City of Hobart have completed their consultation process on Riding the Mountain: Proposed Mountain Bike Network Plan for the kunanyi Mt Wellington trail network.

They received a total of 596 responses across the three user groups. The City also received 8 written submissions on behalf of clubs, associations and individuals.

You can read the results of this engagement via their Your Say Hobart project page. A snapshot is provided below:

  • The majority of all three user groups were either happy or very happy with the proposed Plan (93% of riders, 52% of walkers and 72% of runners).
  • 26% of riders surveyed were glad to have more tracks proposed
  • 26% of runners surveyed wanted to see more shared use tracks
  • A quarter of walkers surveyed were concerned about the potential environmental impact the proposed Plan would have on kunanyi / Mount Wellington

Council officers are now in the process of amending the draft Plan in order to incorporate the feedback from the community. A revised final plan will be presented to Council seeking its endorsement in spring 2020.
