The Freshwater Weir campsite just north of Spalding has been closed by Water SA pending re-evaluation of the weir after some flood damage, last year. Closest water, accommodation is in Spalding. It is planned to re-route the Trail through Spalding in the near future.
A Google Maps interface has been created that allows users to view a dynamic map of the Heysen Trail.
Users can zoom in and out to see more or less detail. Layers can be selectively turned on to provide additional information such as:
- accommodation options along the trail
- panoramio user photos
- end-to-end finish points
- tourism regions
- fire ban districts
A help file has been provided to explain features of the map interface in detail.
