As indicated in our last newsletter DEWNR had advised that a series of new shared trails and upgrades in Sturt Gorge would be completed in 2015.
If you have ventured down into Sturt Gorge recently you may well have noticed that this work has now been completed and gives walkers and cyclists several new options to get down to the river and back out again on more favourable gradients.
If you haven’t ever been into Sturt Gorge, you will find it is one of Adelaide’s little known gems, with walking and bicycle trails connecting Riverside Drive at Bedford Park in the west to Murray’s Hill Road, Coromadel Valley at Horners Bridge in the east (approximately 10 kms) with many other loop options.
New colour-coded trail signage has been installed along many of the trails although you may want to look carefully at the signs to make sure you are heading along the correct trail. Signage at trailheads is also now completed.
Our trail map expert, Rick Williams, has recently put the final touches to our new map which includes all the new trails and is available from Bob Grant on 7329 8296 or firstname.lastname@example.org or the following outlets:
* Carto Graphics at 147 Unley Road, Unleyand
* Friends of Heysen at 10 Pitt Street, Adelaide.
The retail price of the map has not increased from our previously published price of $10.00.
