New trails to explore at O’Halloran Hill

As part of the creation of the new Glenthorne National Park in Adelaide’s southern suburbs, ten new trails are now ready for walkers, runners and mountain bikers to explore at O’Halloran Hill.

The new trails are the first significant investment in new visitor infrastructure as part of the creation of Glenthorne National Park.

The 13 kilometres of new trails reach around O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park provide spectacular views over Gulf St Vincent and Adelaide city.

The new trails at O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park will bring the total trail network in the park to 24 kilometres.

The new trails vary from simple and wide for walkers, prams and beginner riders, to advanced technical rocky trails for mountain bikers and trail runners.

The Glenthorne National Park will include the Glenthorne property, O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park, Marino Conservation Park, Hallett Cove Conservation Park, Happy Valley Reservoir and areas of the Field River Valley.

The Glenthorne precinct is so close to Adelaide city, and will allow more people to get into parks on their bikes and with their dogs to enjoy our beautiful scenic state.

The trail expansion was funded $275,000 by the $12.5 million Glenthorne National Park project.

For more information and to access a map of the trails visit the National Parks and Wildlife Service website.
