Getting there

The walk starts from the carpark on Ayliffes Road. Public transport options include the bus stop at 25 Ayliffes Road, St Marys and Eden Hills Railway Station. Use the Adelaide Metro website to plan your trip.


Route/Trail notes

From the carpark follow the Red River Gum Loop until it meets the Viaduct Track at approximately 1.5km. Follow the Viaduct Track through Watiparinga Reserve. When you reach the boundary of the Watiparinga Reserve again follow the Seaview Loop uphill to connect to the Grey Box Loop. You may return via this track, or follow the Seaview Loop to return to the River Red Gum Loop.

Keep an eye out for a red flag from the nearby archery club when you reach the Viaduct Track. You may need to use a signposted diversion to stay safe.
