The Dry Creek Trail runs all the way though the City of Salisbury from Down Drive Valley View, through Walkley Heights, Pooraka & Mawson Lakes to Globe Derby (with a couple of Road crossings at Briens Road, Main North rd and Pt Wakefield Rd and the railway line at Mawson lakes).

There is also a short on road section at Pratt Ave Pooraka.

The Dry Creek trail now is connected to the Little Para River Trail behind Globe Derby.

Please note the new cycling / pedestrian underpass at Port Wakefield rd – Globe Derby is effected by tides.
