Parks Victoria cut down 34 of the trees (Pinus Muricata) that were on the National Trust List of Significant Trees. This was done to make way for a car park. It is in the Warburton Mountain Bike Feasibility Study that the Redwoods are proposed to be a ‘Trailhead’ for mountain bikers with a car park, signage and toilet facilities. Trails are proposed that three trails will go from the Redwoods to Warburton, Big Pat’s Creek and O’Shannassy Aqueduct. There is also a proposed trail right through the middle of the Redwoods themselves.
