Morialta – Muesli Wall closure

Important information from the Morialta Senior Ranger about Muesli Wall: Contractors have started work on a new section of walking trail this week which will cut out the steep dangerous section leading down to the climbs. Depending on good weather conditions the work should be completed some time mid next week. There will be some sections of the trail blocked off when they are completing the stone work along the track, but they are trying to keep interruption to a minimum, most of the work is on the new section of trail. Please respect closure signs.
