Roachdale Nature Trail is a 1.7km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Roachdale Reserve South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.


The Roachdale Reserve is one of the few remaining places in the Mount Lofty Ranges where one can see original native forest of the region as it has been for thousands of years. The 46 hectare woodland has an upper storey of eucalypt trees and an understorey of grasses, herbs and shrubs adapted to dry conditions. It is a refuge for native birds and other animals.

The reserve is closed on on days when a Total Fire Ban, Catastrophic or Severe Fire Risk is declared in the Mt Lofty Ranges. Visit the CFS website for current info.

The trailhead is on the South Para Road, where it meets Wattle Road. The trailhead is 2.6km north of Kersbrook.
