Trail Notes & Important Information
- Please plan your journey carefully, and take into account time needed to return to your starting point.
- Make sure you take water and any other supplies you may need for your walk, and let someone know your plans.
- When walking along a beach section that continues inland, keep a look out for the trail markers. To avoid damage from the sea & high tides, the markers are positioned at the high tide mark.
- In some sections, metal access stiles have been installed to prevent vehicles accessing the trail. They also protect the senstive coastal environment from damage causing by vehicles. Walkers can easily step over these stiles, but cyclists will need to lift their bike over the stile to continue along the marked trail.
- Cyclists may find that some off-road sections of the trail can become soft at certain times oif the year, mainly during summer and autumn. It may be easier for cyclists to walk their bikes along those sections, or can follow local unsealed roads before re-joining the marked trail.
- For cyclists, the marked trail may follow a sealed main highway for part of a section. Please take care and be aware of traffic including B-double trucks.
Parts of the trail with gravel will compact more over time. If you find a section where the gravel has not settled, please lodge a service request to Yorke Peninsula Council.
