Traversing the picturesque Clare Valley wine region, the Riesling Trail is one of the first rail-trails to be developed in South Australia.
The trail runs for 35 kilometres from Auburn to Clare and onto Barinia and is located approximately two hours drive north of Adelaide.
The Riesling Trail is suitable for recreational walkers, mountain and touring bikes, as well as wheelchairs and pushers. Bike hire is now available from Clare and Auburn, and many bed and breakfast’s in the region.
Named after the grape and wine variety that the region is famous for, the Riesling Trail travels past many cellar doors and other visitor attractions, making it ideal for those wanting a leisurely walk or ride with a distraction or two.
There are three loop trails, which allow you to return to your starting point without travelling over old ground. Car parking is available in Clare, Sevenhill, Watervale and Auburn.
