Statewide Trails Strategy

The Statewide Trails Strategy is a high-level document that outlines how South Australia will reach its goal in the next 10 years of becoming a leading destination for trail experiences. Through a collaborative approach, it will establish a framework to guide decision-making based on location, ecological and cultural significance.

The development of targeted new and existing upgraded infrastructure, identifying sustainable funding opportunities for long-term development, maintenance, and marketing to provide a hierarchy of trails for community, visitors and events.

Walkers, hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, trail-runners, paddlers and horse-riders are just some of the dedicated recreational users of South Australia’s trails network. Our trails span far and wide, guiding visitors through our metropolitan national parks, reserves and city parklands, along our sweeping coastlines, through rugged destinations in regional South Australia, and everywhere in between.

They vary from local and regional to national significance, in terms of their scope and scale, their importance as recreation and tourism assets, and their popularity with user groups. Short suburban trails, multi-day adventures, wheel chair accessible loops – there really is something for everyone on South Australia's extensive trails network.
