River Torrens Linear Park Trail Reviews & Ratings
This is an unpretentious track that wont have you in raptures but it has an easy old fashioned appeal. Mainly used by local dog walkers and joggers. Lovely examples of the last red gums that used to forest the plains before the arrival of Europeans. Best walked or cycled early in the day.
Wow! I've never seen this before! Dry-as-a-bone Torrens Outlet with no outlet! You can walk from West Beach all the way north to Outer Harbour. Do we ever need 40 days and 40 nights worth of rain! April has passed to the back end and no rain in sight. Not good 😖
Beautiful place to ride in the evening with an amazing breeze across your path.
Lovely walk along the Torrens river. Really great to see the horses on our way to watch the sunset at the beach....
Great trail to walk, jog, run or bike ride. Some steep bits and some downhill bits, which I loved the most flying down hill on my bike. Goes from the city to hills in one direction and city to beach in the other.
