The City of Hobart has been rejuvenating the historic Organ Pipes and Pinnacle Tracks on Mount Wellington in Tasmania.
Originally built in the early 1900’s, the walk follows a historic track through a sub-alpine environment. The new works use the same style, techniques and materials as the original works and are carefully blended in with the existing track and surrounds. Providing spectacular views of Hobart and the Organ Pipes, the tracks contribute significantly to the health and happiness of the local community and visitors.
This presentation covers the whole project lifecycle, from planning and design through project management and construction, and its role in tourism to Tasmania. It will highlight challenges of balancing environmental, heritage and safety issues, addressing multiple stakeholder perspectives, and construction in alpine environments across boulder fields using helicopters for materials transport.

This 1997 paper estimates the value of a relatively new form of recreation: mountain biking. Its popularity has resulted in many documented conflicts, and its value must be estimated so an informed decision regarding trail allocation can be made. A travel cost model (TCM) is used to estimate the economic benefits, measured by consumer surplus, to the users of mountain bike trails near Moab, Utah.
