Wilampa Trail, Second Valley Forest Reserve

About the Walking Trail

The Wilampa Trail is a new trail opened in December 2021 in Second Valley Forest. The trail is just north of Deep Creek National Park, and near Delamere, Rapid Bay, and Second Valley.

The name ‘Wilampa’ comes from Kaurna language meaning ‘black cockatoo with yellow or white feathers’, in recognition of the endangered Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo known to inhabit the forest and feed on the seeds of pinecones.

The trail traverses a network of fire tracks through pine plantation and a mixture of hardwood species. Sections of the trail follow the creek line and passes the Second Valley Forest depot and historic sheep yards.

The trail is suitable for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, this multi-use loop trail recognises traditional owners, the Kaurna people. Dog walking is welcome on this trail – please refer to the Forestry SA dog walking guidelines.

Start the trail from gate BF12 off Bedlam Flat Road, off Range Road. Gate J02 and BF12 are opposite each other. The trail is 20 minutes drive from Rapid Bay and Second Valley. Allow 2 hours to walk the whole trail.

Print or save a map before you go, or use your smartphone on-site and scan the QR code on the trailhead sign to get a copy of the map.

Please note that forests are closed on days of Total Fire Ban.

Also from this trailhead is the newly opened Jones Journey, a 7km 2 hour-trail.

The trails were developed as a joint project of Forestry SA and the District Council of Yankalilla.
