Trails tracking well at Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta
Trail works across Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta continue to progress.
There will be a comprehensive trail and track network across the park providing a range of recreational opportunities. Importantly the trails and tracks will connect with key external locations such as Happy Valley Reservoir via the Black Road – South Road pedestrian crossing.
The fire track network, which runs along the western, southern and eastern boundaries, will provide easier access for firefighting and other emergency service vehicles, and also caters for recreation activities such as horseriding, cycling, walking and running.
Along the trails, visitors will be able to read about the property’s history through the inclusion of interpretative materials. A range of lookouts are being constructed linking to the trails, providing opportunities to take in the views. Look out for the natural furniture created from timber that was once destined for firewood and woodchips.
The design of the trails network within Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta aims to provide inclusive experiences for all people and embraces best-practice universal design for accessibility and inclusion. This includes the construction of Grade 1 access compliant trails leading from the Glenthorne Hub area, enabling people to explore areas of the park.
Keep an eye out for further updates on trails you can try out as they are completed.
