Amy Gillett Pathway

Sports and Recreation Facilities

The Amy Gillett Pathway is a family-friendly cycling, walking and horse riding trail that runs 17km through the Adelaide Hills. Specifically, it runs north-south through the fertile valleys and vales from Oakbank to Mount Torrens with country vistas, small townships and a few wineries along the way. You can also expect to enjoy a safe and easy ride: not only is this bike trail separate from the road, most of it is flat.

The Pathway is on a sealed bitumen track that follows the course of an old railway line. And since trains don’t perform very well on inclines over 5%, the trail is completely flat in parts or, at worst, subjected to a super-gentle incline over several kilometres.

The pathway is named after Amy Gillett, a member of the Australian women’s cycling team who was tragically killed while training in Germany in 2005. The pathway was built to encourage people to enjoy cycling and, importantly, to do so in perfect safety.

Though loved by locals as a pleasant, traffic-free way to get between townships, the Pathway is increasingly enjoyed by visitors as a way to immerse in rural landscapes, indulge in cool climate wineries and sample the laid-back lifestyle of farming communities in the Adelaide Hills.
