The Kidman Trail is a multi use horse riding, cycling and walking trail that traverses 269 kilometers of roadsides, forest tracks, private land and unmade road reserves with trail markers indicating route.
Trail enthusiasts will enjoy “seeing the world in a different way” through the Fleurieu Peninsula, Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Barossa and Clare Valley tourism regions.
The trail is proudly named after Sir Sidney Kidman, a prominent local pastoralist and horse breeder. Kidman was a pioneer of his time with unparalleled forethought in business and interminable community spirit. The Kidman Trail provides a scenic trail that highlights the natural beauty, cultural history and major points of interest along the Mount Lofty Ranges.
A number of trailheads providing information on horse yarding, campsites and float parking are installed along the route.
