Yurrebilla Trail

The Yurrebilla Trail is an interpretative bushwalking trail through the Adelaide Hills area that is currently being developed by the Department for Environment and Heritage. The trail traverses some of South Australia's most spectacular and interesting landscapes and provides a link between national and conservation parks in the central Mount Lofty Ranges.

The trail is 54 kilometres long and can be walked in its entirety in three days. It's divided into one full-day and four half-day sections.

Heysen Trail

Arguably South Australia's most famous trail, the Heysen Trail runs for 1,200 kilometres from Cape Jervis on the south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula to Parachilna Gorge in the Flinders Ranges. The trail passes through some of South Australia's most scenic areas, including national parks, state forests and popular tourism destinations including the Adelaide Hills, Barossa and Wilpena Pound.

The trail is ideal for all levels of walkers, with sections of the trail suitable for shorter walks. Though mainly a walking trail, there are multi-use sections where cycling and horseriding are permitted.
