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.
