The Kidman Trail is a multi use horse riding, cycling and walking trail that traverses 225 kilometres of roadsides, quiet farm routes, forest tracks and unmade road reserves.
Trail enthusiasts will enjoy "seeing the world in a different way" through the Fleurieu Peninsula, Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Barossa and Clare Valley tourism regions.
The trail is proudly named after Sir Sidney Kidman, a prominent local pastoralist and horse breeder. Kidman was a pioneer of his time with unparalleled forethought in business and interminable community spirit.
The Kidman Trail provides a sustainable, safe and scenic trail that highlights the natural beauty, cultural history and major points of interest along the Mount Lofty Ranges. It utilises existing tracks and trails through Forest Reserves and other accessible public land, quiet roads and unmade road reserves with trail markers indicating the route.
A number of trailheads providing information on horse yarding, campsites and float parking are installed along the route.
NB: Kidman Trail Closure (until further notice) - Ford crossing of Mount Barker Creek below Hender Road (Hillside Lane) and off Back Callington Road. View Micro video of Kidman Trail.
