About the Walking Trail

A series of three walking trails starting in Crafers, meandering along quiet country lanes and reserves.

Each trail is well marked with colour-coded trail markers. All three trails begin at the trailhead in Main Street, Crafers, by the roundabout near the freeway exit. It is possible to begin in Stirling to hike all the way to Mt Lofty summit.
