About the Walking Trail
The shared 2 kilometre walk and bike path sits alongside the magnificent Western Flat Creek which flows through the heart of Newenham before joining the existing Mount Barker Linear Trail taking you into the town centre of Mount Barker through Keith Stephenson Park.
This now forms a 16 kilometre round trip from Newenham through Mount Barker and on to the Laratinga Wetlands, which is one of the most successful and diverse wetlands in Australia, and the only one of its kind in South Australia.
The pathway is perfect for taking in the beautiful, natural environment of Newenham, which includes a range of native vegetation and local birdlife. The linear park also includes a bio-diversity corridor, native vegetation, wetlands and a viewing platform, which is perfect for the whole family to explore together.
The trail is made of crushed aggregate, making it accessible for most people include wheelchairs, however it may get muddy after rains. Various sections of the connecting Mount Barker Linear Trail between Newenham, the town centre and Laratinga wetlands are compacted earth.
