About the Walking Trail

The path follows the Glenelg tramline from South Terrace, Adelaide to Glenelg.

The trail is a shared use trail, for cyclists and walkers. The trail is a bitumen surface, wide and flat. The trail is suitable for people with mobility access, including wheelchairs, prams and cyclists. The trail is popular with commuting cyclists during weekday peak periods. Most of the trail is on a dedicated trail, but there are short sections between Goodwood and Hyde Park that are along footpaths.

Near Morphettville, the trail connects with the Westside Bikeway, a 7.6km trail along a linear park between Morphettville back to Mile End, and also the Sturt River Linear Park which heads south-east.

There are plans to upgrade the cycle trail from South Terrace into the city. This upgrade focuses on cyclists, however the footpaths along King William Road in the city are quite suitable for walkers anyway. There are also plans to upgrade how the trail crosses the railway at Goodwood, with an overpass proposed.

The trail is named after a local cyclist, Michael Turtur, who competed in the Olympic Games and three Commonwealth Games winning a total of five medals.
