Shamus Liptrot Cycling Trail, Balaklava to Halbury

About the Walking Trail

The shared-use Shamus Liptrot Cycling Trail begins from the Lions Walking Trail in Balaklava and follows the former trail line for 11km to the town of Halbury.

The trail honours elite junior local cyclist Shamus Liptrot who sadly passed away in 2011, several years after suffering serious injuries in a cycling accident. Halbury was Shamus’s home town.

The trail follows the path of the old railway line. There is a short 700m on-road section along a dirt road. The trail is better suited to cyclists, but can also be walked. The Balaklava Golf Course is 2.3km along the trail from Balaklava.

The trail was completed and opened in April of 2017.
