About ForestrySA

horse riding, and a diverse range of organised and 

competitive events, making them a popular place 

to visit.

Forest access

Roadways in the Mount Lofty Ranges Forest are 

maintained by ForestrySA for forest operations such 

as plantation establishment and tending, logging 

and fire protection. Some of these roadways provide 

access to a number of visitor facilities such as picnic 

areas, campgrounds and trails located within the 

forests, but most are closed to public vehicle access 

by gates and barriers or by way of signage. These 

roads can, however, be used for activities such as 

bushwalking, cycling and horse riding. Please note 

that not all roadways will be adequate for your 

vehicle.

Multi-use trails 

Walking, cycling and horse riding are all popular 

activities in ForestrySA forest areas. The Heysen 

(walking) and Kidman (horse riding) trails pass 

through the Mount Crawford and Kuitpo Forests. 

The Mawson Trail (cycling) also passes through the 

Mount Crawford Forest.

A number of clearly marked short walks and longer 

multi-use recreation trails (walking/cycling and 

horse riding) are also available within the Mount 

Lofty Ranges Forest. The forest road and track 

network is also used extensively by forest visitors. 

To ensure all can continue to enjoy themselves 

safely, always observe normal trail etiquette.
