Section 1: Belair National Park to Eagle on the Hill, Yurrebilla Trail

28 July 2018: The map below may not be available right now, please try again later.

We are experiencing severe rate limiting imposed by Google under their new map pricing arrangements. We will be implementing a solution to ensure as many people as possible can access the walking maps.

Under Google's new pricing structure, we will incur an annual fee in excess of AUD $5,000 for a service which was previously free. As a not-for-profit body largely lead by volunteers this is not an insignificant charge. You can support our work in promoting walking and walking trails with an membership from $22 per year.

  2. Section 2: Eagle-on-the-Hill to Summertown (7 km)

  4. Section 4: Norton Summit to Morialta (7.5 km)
  5. Section 5: Morialta to Ambers Gully (River Torrens) (13 km)

Ranging from narrow single-person tracks to vehicle fire tracks, the Yurrebilla Trail passes many of the Adelaide Hills’ top tourist attractions, including Carrick Hill, Waterfall Gully, the Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens, Mount Lofty Summit and Cleland Wildlife Park. It also visits or has connection to picturesque Hills’ towns such as Summertown, Crafers and Norton Summit, as well as wineries, pubs and other attractions.
