I've never seen signs near the pipe bridge end - but if I recall correctly, there have been signs near the other end (Bell Bird picnic area) - where all the buses/tourists come to see the bats.

Snuffy wrote:Ahh.. it's been a while since I've ridden that part of the park, but the last time I did (err.. 2 years ago?), I noticed that there were no "No bikes" signs from Bellbird picnic ground entrance to that trail. Then when you're wayyyyyy down the trail, the signs start.
So yes, as far as I can remember, it's always been no bikes from under the pipe bridge heading towards Bellbird picnic ground

nikolai wrote:Yep, on that segment the 'no bikes' signs have been there for years, although as mentioned above frequently removed & replaced. I've always ignored them and never had an issue with any walkers, but always give way even if they stop for me first.
