This short, 1.3km sealed trail, runs through the Dartmoor Rail Lands, a reserve in the small township of Dartmoor. The trail is an initiative of the Dartmoor and District Progress Association and the Dartmoor Lions Club following over seven years of lobbying the local council. Locals were keen to rejuvenate the former railway reserve that was overgrown with weeds and considered a fire hazard.
Glenelg Shire received $2 million funding under the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program to enable construction. Progress Association President Wendy Dowling reports strong usage of the trail since its opening, with even a busload of walkers turning up! The trail has several wheelchair access points.
