Overall rating
  • Just a note, the start of this gpx trail is a tad deceiving, The pioneer womens trail starts on Silver road in Verdun and follows a different trail to Bridgewater.

    The trail above, the section from Hahndorf to Bridgewater follows the Heysen Spur Trail into Hahndorf and there is a bridge crossing that’s a bit dicey in busy times as there is no pedestrian shoulder. the map on southaustralian trails is correct however the gpx downloads match the trail above.

      Thanks for the feedback Catherine. This description, route map and GPX file include an extended section thorough to Hahndorf, in line with the National Trust SA website that states the trail commences at the Hahndorf Institute, following Hahndorf’s main road before crossing the Onkaparinga River and officially joining the trail near Verdun.
