Hit the trails at Kuitpo and Mount Crawford
ForestrySA’s Mount Lofty Ranges forest reserves provide extensive opportunity to bike ride in a safe off-road, natural environment.
Well-marked shared-use trails for walking, cycling and horse riding are available within the Kuitpo and Mount Crawford Forest Reserves.
For more adventurous and challenging trails, head over to the Fox Creek Bike Park, Kersbrook Trails, Pewsey Vale, Bone Gully (Kangarilla) or Prospect Hill.
The network of existing single and fire tracks is also accessible for bike riding, with many events held here every year.
Sections of the Mawson Trail pass through the Mount Crawford Forest. The multi-use trail covers many kilometres of roadsides, forest tracks, private land and unmade road reserve and is popular among those wanting to explore South Australia in a unique way.
Bike riding is prohibited within Native Forest Reserves, which have been set aside for conservation, unless there is a specific management plan in place.
Please consider the Forest Trail Code (located at the bottom of this page), as you may encounter other forest users including horse riders and walkers during your ride.
