Located only 12 km from Adelaide, the Yurrebilla Trail is one of the state’s most user-friendly long distance trails. Starting at Belair Railway Station, you can hike the 54-kilometre Yurrebilla Trail in its entirety in three days, or take it at your leisure and walk one or more half-day sections of the trail in the area of your choice.
There are two guides available, both of which are out of print and of limited availability – they may be difficult to source.
- Yurrebilla Trail: Bushwalking Map, fold-out 1:20 000 topographic map with trail notes
- Yurrebilla Trail: A Hiker’s Guide (as shown on this page), booklet with extensive trail notes, and fold out 1:20 000 topographic map inside cover
