Trails and Places to Ride
With over 90,000 hectares of great places to ride in ForestrySA plus national parks, beaches, rail trails and stations, there is lots to explore!
Trails and horse-friendly campsites with yarding are located on ForestrySA land at Kuitpo and Mount Crawford Forests in South Australia. Forest blocks stretch across the state from Wirrabarra in the mid-north of the state, through to Second Valley on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and Mount Gambier in the South-East, all providing excellent riding. Camping, group rides, events and carriage driving can be arranged with ForestrySA. Permits are required for every rider and driver.
Our state features many national parks, with a number hosting permanently marked trails, while other parks have an option to enter if a permit is pre-arranged. Refer to the Parks SA website and search for the park you are interested in, or contact the local district Ranger’s Office. Reference to the relevant Park Management Plan may provide guidance.
National Local Council made and unmade road reserves
A road reserve is a corridor preserved for allowing people to move across the countryside. Formed, or ‘made’ roads are those with an identifiable carriageway which may be sealed or unsealed (gravel). Unformed or ‘un-made’ roads are also legal corridors but may not be immediately recognisable on the ground to the untrained eye. These un-made roads are found marked on some digital or paper maps. Public access is permitted along these corridors, however, it is advisable to check with Council first to ensure that the land has not been sold or other conditions for use apply.
