The redeveloped Trails SA website has been live now for almost two months and continues to be regularly updated with more trails information.
Another significant addition is the inclusion of the Tourism Industry Integration on the site. You can now view local places to stay, food & drink, transport, and tourism information on each trail.
Visitors to the site can now also book online for accommodation.

"I Share My Trail: campaign:
Trail users in SA's beautiful national parks have united in a campaign to encourage respect and co-operation among all users, whether they are on a bike, on a horse or on foot.
Officially launched by Sustainability, Environment and Conservation Minister Ian Hunter, the "I share my trail" campaign is spreading the word to all trail users to show respect and cooperate with others an the trail.
Parks in SA with shared trails include Anstey Hill Recreation Park, Belair National Park, Cleland Conservation Park, Cobbler Creek Recreation Park, O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park, Onkaparinga National Park and Recreation Park, Shepherds Hill Recreation Park and Sturt Gorge Recreation Park.
On shared use trails, walkers, runners, hikers, bike riders and horse riders may all find themselves together, using the same space. Trail signs denote those that are single use or single direction. Users are encouraged to be respectful and give way to other trail users.
Have your Say - Greenways:
Have your say on the establishment of greenways to secure the Heysen and Mawson trail networks within Wirrabara and Bundaleer Forests.
Ownership and management of Bundaleer and Wirrabara Forests may soon change. Using provisions under the Recreational Greenways Act 2000 will enable the State Government to protect the Heysen and Mawson Trail networks for recreational access in perpetuity for use by walkers and/or cyclists.

Eagle Mountain Bike Upgrades:
Upgrades to a number of trails within Eagle Mountain Bike Park begin 5th June and works will continue for approximately 4 weeks until complete.
The park is open for use during this period but please remember to obey all signage - especially any "Trail Closed" signs.
Of particular note is the planned upgrades to the downhill track "The Mixer" including some realignment of the track. This will result in an amazing experience for those experienced riders up for the challenge!
