Summary

This trail is easily accessed along it’s entire length.  It runs next to the Glenelg tram line and has a road next to it on the other side.

This is not a rail trail as such, but a rail side trail next to a working tram line.
It is a commutor trail between Glenelg and Adelaide City.
It has a smooth sealed surface for the entire length, with some interesting sculptures along the way.
Access to this trail is very easy, and you can join or exit the trail anywhere you like along the entire length

It is a very flat path that crosses a few busy roads, although all have traffic lights so that you can safely cross.  There are some interesting metal sculptures along the way, and an overpass over the Main South Road, giving you a good view of the surrounds.

The whole of the Adelaide CBD is surrounded by parklands, which have many walking and cycling paths.  Once you get to the Adelaide end of the trail, you can make use of these paths to gain traffic free access to other parts of the city.
