This is a very picturesque 10km long rail trail very near to Adelaide. It will be 32km long when fully developed all the way to Mt Pleasant.
This first stage of the trail opened in January 2010, and actually starts at the end of Elizabeth St in Oakbank where the old railway station once stood
This section of trail was opened in June 2011, and features a smooth hot-mix surface.
The railway line from Balhannah to Mt Pleasant was opened in 1918 and closed in 1964. The former corridor between Balhannah and Oakbank has mostly returned to private landowners.
The Friends of the Adelaide Hills Rail Trail was formed in 2007 to assist the development of the rail trail. Please refer to the link below for their details.

The trail is managed by Dept Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. To report any issues or problems please contact

I seem to be the only one offering comments, but here is a suggestion. At all access points to the trail, I would like to see a notice requesting cyclists to give some warning when approaching people on foot or horseback from behind. On that smooth surface it is impossible to hear bicycles coming. I am amazed there have been no accidents.... a startled dog or horse will swing around to face a perceived threat, could push its owner / rider into the path of bikes. Please give this some consideration.
Thanks for that, I was quite puzzled but think I have seen that sign. Will look for it next time. I'm looking forward to walking the new section when it's finished, Great work!
The trail extension starts in Newman Road about 50 metres to the east of the existing trail. Look for a stobie pole with HANSON Lot 102 written on it. The driveway by the pole is the access road.
Love the trail! I live in Birdwood & often drive to Charleston to walk my greyhound on it. I see that work is underway for the Charleston to Mt Torrens section... lovely, I can't wait! But I have been trying to workout where in Charleston that section starts & so far I can't find it. Can anyone enlighten me?
