Explore the ‘Epic’ new mountain bike trail

South Australia’s newest moun­tain bike trail has been unveiled at Mount Remark­able Nation­al Park. 

A trail like no other

The Remark­able Epic Trail is an adven­ture for those rid­ers who want a chal­lenge! This 39km closed-loop trail mean­ders through the rugged beau­ty of Mount Remark­able Nation­al Park and its adja­cent lands. 

The trail offers a fresh per­spec­tive on the park, lead­ing you through pre­vi­ous­ly unex­plored regions, reveal­ing hid­den gems along the way.

From the west­ern side of the trail, you’ll be treat­ed to a dra­mat­ic view of the mag­nif­i­cent Black Range. The trail then loops back toward the charm­ing town of Mel­rose, pass­ing beneath the icon­ic Gibral­tar Rock for­ma­tions.

A har­mo­ny of cul­ture and nature

One of the most remark­able aspects of the trail is the col­lab­o­ra­tion between TrailScapes and the Nukunu Wap­ma Thu­ra Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion. They’ve seam­less­ly inte­grat­ed the unique cul­tur­al her­itage and rich bio­di­ver­si­ty of the region into the trail’s design. This fusion of cul­ture and nature makes the trail an enrich­ing expe­ri­ence.

A part of some­thing big­ger

The trail is just one part of the Remark­able South­ern Flinders project, a $10 mil­lion ini­tia­tive that aims to enhance the vis­i­tor expe­ri­ence in the South­ern Flinders Ranges. Along­side the trail, you’ll find new and improved day vis­i­tor facil­i­ties in Wirrabara and an addi­tion­al 20 kilo­me­tres of trails in Mount Remark­able Nation­al Park at Wil­lowie.

But that’s not all – this project also promis­es a new mul­ti-day walk­ing expe­ri­ence on the west­ern side of the range in Wap­ma Thu­ra-South­ern Flinders Ranges Nation­al Park and an upgrade of the Mam­bray Creek camp­ground and day vis­i­tor area.

The Remark­able South­ern Flinders project is fund­ed by the South Aus­tralian and Aus­tralian gov­ern­ments, with sup­port from the Foun­da­tion for Nation­al Parks & Wildlife, Region­al Devel­op­ment Aus­tralia Yorke & Mid North, North­ern Areas Coun­cil, Dis­trict Coun­cil of Mount Remark­able, Port Pirie Region­al Coun­cil, and the Nukunu Tra­di­tion­al Own­ers.
