It has been mentioned before but I think you need a section specifically for anything trip/outing related. It could include (if feature is available) sub sections in it for
Track closures and conditions
Thanks for your suggestions Jamie,
We have already got Planned Trips and Trip Report integrated to our trip page. Once a trip has been completed, the trip report section will become available for participants to post their reports.
I will have a think about the first 2 suggestions regarding the track closure/conditions and trip suggestions :)
