The Little Para Trail is the most significant trail in the City of Salisbury which allows riders to follow a predominantly flat 10km trail (apart from a short on road detour at Porter st) from Carisbrooke Park (next to Main North Rd) to Port Wakefield Rd.

There is also an opportunity to follow the trail under Main North Rd and up the hill above the Old Spot Hotel for 1.4km before becoming Private Property.

Work completed has seen an all-weather (bitumen) surface option for walkers & riders from Parabanks in Salisbury to under Port Wakefield Rd at Bolivar and west of Port Wakefield rd alongside the White Road Wetlands and around Globe Derby park, linking with the Dry Creek Trail.


There are a number of easy access points to join the Trail:
