About the Walking Trail
The Callington Spur Trail is a linear walking and mountain bike trail of 27km from Murray Bridge to Callington.
The trail can be begin from the main Lavender Federation Trail trailhead in Sturt Reserve on the banks of the Murray River (to be a 27km hike one-way) or from the White Hill Truck Drivers Memorial near the outskirts of the town (to be a 25km hike one-way). The trail could also be easily begun from the entrance of Kinchina Conservation Park on Tower Road (to be a 23km hike one-way).
Walking east to west, the trail enters Kinchina Conservation Park before following the Lavender Federation Trail past the Monarto Zoo, continuing alongside roadside tracks into Callington. The trail gently climbs to a hill 3.5km from Callington with views over Callington and towards Mt Barker.
