With just 16km of trail yet to be signed, the 129km Willunga Basin Trail is on track foo completion by November.
Volunteers are continuing to work on trail establishment, recently completing the Kangarilla area (Sections 7 and 8).
We have brought the trail along Brooks Rd, and made a roadside path along part of Jackson Rd. Council contractors are to clear woody weeds on the edge of Bakers Gully Rd at the end of September and we will then make a safe path for walkers. Federal government funding has been achieved for a fence to separate walkers and cattle including bulls, between Kangarilla and Bone Gully Forest near Mt Panorama; this connection has long been sought by walking groups as well as the Willunga Basin Trail, for whom it is a vital link. We hope that it will be achieved by October.
Volunteers have been doing plantings and weed removal on many parts of the trail and will soon start a spring maintenance program to clear the established parts.
Much of the trail is being walked, including by groups. Friends of the Heysen Trail walked most of it earlier this year.
