Women’s Pioneer Trail
Walk grade
Trail Walker
Description

The Pioneer Women’s Trail is a track that was used in the 1800’s for the women and girls to make the trip on foot to Adelaide where they would sell their produce. They would carry baskets of vegetables and dairy produce, and after selling it in Adelaide, they would return with their purchases and two bricks each for building their church.

This walk is along country roads, laneways, and trails through the Adelaide Hills including Bridgewater and along Cox Creek. We pass through Mt George and Cleland Conservation Parks before descending to Beaumont House.

There are a number of up and down sections for this walk.

This walk involves bus transport – please ensure that you use hand sanitizer prior to boarding and wear a face mask throughout the bus trip. Please note that the bus is not optional, this must be paid for as part of the registration.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
