  • Construction for new Epic Mountain Bike Trail commences

    Construction has commenced on the new Epic Mountain Bike Trail planned for the Southern Flinders Ranges.

    South Australian company TrailScapes, who are specialists in environmentally sustainable design and construction, will build the new trail.

    The Epic Trail has been designed to international standards and is set to become a world-class tourism drawcard for the region.

    The proposed route will showcase the best mountain biking country that the Southern Flinders Ranges has to offer. The 42-kilometre trail will wind its way through Mount Remarkable National Park and adjacent private land, traversing the previously unexplored western flank of Mount Remarkable and descending into Spring Creek. From the western side of the trail, the spectacular Black Range is visible before the trail loops back toward Melrose beneath the Gibraltar and Cathedral Rock formations.
