About the Walking Trail
The Clare Valley Wine & Wilderness Trail showcases Clare Valley’s natural beauty & premium food and wine products.
The trail will be a 100km loop of hiking and cycling trails. The trail will travel on a network of backroads, road reserves & private property. Where possible the hiking trail follows cross country trail routes, where as the cycling route sticks to roads. From our calculations, about 36% of the route for walkers is trails, and 63% country dirt roads. Walkers would take 5 days to complete the entire route, cyclists between 2 & 5 days.
Once complete, the trail will pass 24 cellar doors and numerous restaurants and cafes.
Stage 1 of the trail was opened in April 2021. Stage 2 of the trail was opened in October 2021. Stage 6 of the trail was opened in May 2022. The overall trail will be 110km long loop trail consisting of 5 stages, each approx 20km in length.
