20 kilometres of new mountain bike trails constructed at Willowie are now ready for public use.
Catering for beginner through to intermediate riders, the new trails are family-friendly with some progressive elements included for riders looking to challenge their skills.
New and improved day visitor facilities are now also in place at Willowie including a picnic area, accessible toilets and improvements to the existing carpark.
These new trails will contribute to the network of already popular mountain bike trails in Melrose and were planned with the help of local mountain bike organisation, Bike Melrose.
Trail construction was undertaken by South Australian business Trailscapes.
Local Port Pirie business Alsanto Constructions Pty Ltd completed construction of the Willowie day visitor facilities.

We acknowledge and respect the deep spiritual connection and the relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to Country.
The Department works in partnership with the First Peoples of South Australia and supports their Nations to take a leading role in caring for their Country.
