Starting just north of Adelaide and travelling to the Outback town of Blinman in the Flinders Ranges, the Mawson Trail is the ideal option for mountain bikers wanting to travel through South Australia’s regional and remote rural areas.

Close to nine hundred kilometres long, the trail includes little-used country roads. State forest and national park fire trails, farm access tracks and unmade or unused road reserves. The trail avoids traffic and bitumen roads and leads cyclists into the remote areas of the Region.

It’s a challenging ride and certainly not for the faint hearted. It comes through Burra and then heads north and west through the hills around Mount Bryan.
