Naturalists call for bike trail plan transparency

Environmental groups have called out Hepburn Shire over a lack of transparency around 100 kilometres of proposed mountain bike trails in Creswick Regional Park.

Ballarat Field Naturalists Club president Bill Elder says the planning application states the project is for informal purposes.

However he says the intention of the trails is to hold organised mountain bike races, which might threaten wildlife.
