Rainy season sees Johor close forest eco-parks, trails, 4WD tracks

5 days ago

JOHOR BARU – All of Johor’s forest eco-parks, as well as hiking and four-wheel-drive vehicle tracks in permanent forest reserves remain closed to the public until further notice, said state Forestry Department director Datuk Salim Aman.

He said the closure notice was issued as a precautionary measure to avoid any untoward incidents during the prolonged rainy season.

He also advised the public not to enter these areas illegally, as the current rainy weather in Johor makes the areas risky.

“Seven districts in Johor have also been hit by floods, so we do not want to encourage any hiking, extreme activities, and so on, especially in areas with sources of water where there is a risk of flooding,” he said when contacted here today.
