Myponga Reservoir Trail

About the Walking Trail

The trail follows the edge of the reservoir takes you through open plains, forested areas and native vegetation, with a couple of viewing areas along the way.

The trail is a 5.2km walk, including walking out to all lookouts. Without walking to the lookouts, the trail is a 4.4km circuit. Walking anti-clockwise, after Reservoir Lookout (the second reservoir viewing area) the trail loops back to the start via the elevated ground above the reservoir. There are several picnic tables along the trail.

The trail along the reservoir edge is will made and suitable for bikes and prams, although if the reservoir is full there maybe water across the trail. The trail is unsealed, and is a shared-use path for both cyclists and walkers.

Start from either the end of Hansen Road, opposite Smiling Samoyed Brewery, or from Eatts Road.
