Where to take a stroll, walk the dog and ride a bike
While construction is being completed, there are still great opportunities to take a walk or ride a bike at Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta.
As one of Adelaide’s dog-friendly national parks, the 4km Glenthorne Loop Trail provides a great walk for you and your furry friend. Just remember to pick up their poo – our native wildlife will thank you.
The Glenthorne Loop Trail starts at the Glenthorne Ranger Station, and takes visitors past more than 200,000 seedlings planted in efforts to restore habitat and encourage biodiversity on the former farmland. This temporary trail includes a lookout with fabulous views over the visitor hub, and connects to Happy Valley Reservoir at the Blacks Road pedestrian crossing.
If biking is more your speed, you can test your skills on the mountain bike trails on the northern side of Majors Road, previously O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park, which is now part of Glenthorne National Park.
There’s 8km of trails, ranging from easy through to intermediate and advanced. With dedicated climbs to bring you right back to the top of the trails, you can try them all!
See the Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta trails map for more information.
Please note that bike riding is currently not allowed in the new area of Glenthorne National Park on the south side of Majors Road, with many parts of the park still under construction.
