Mt Lofty Summit

New family friendly walking trail opened to Mount Lofty Summit

Steub Trail opened – from Cleland Wildlife Park to Mount Lofty Summit

An exciting addition has been made to the Mount Lofty ranges network of trails, with a new shared use trail officially opened for use, with a gentler incline especially designed to be accessible to families with small children, and people with reduced mobility.

Made possible by a generous bequest, the environment department has created a wonderful gentle walking trail with a very manageable incline, running from Cleland Wildlife Park, up to Mount Lofty Summit.

Kid-friendly incline

The Steub Trail is the fourth trail in the network, perfect for families with younger kids who can’t manage the steeper grade of the Waterfall Gully track. It’s less heavy duty, wide and with a gentle incline, giving diversity in the tracks for a broad spectrum of our community to enjoy.

Beginning at Cleland Wildlife Park, The Steub Trail gently climbs through forest woodlands on its way to Mount Lofty Summit.

Steub Trail Fast Facts

    • The return trail is 7.7 kilometres long and will take around three hours to travel.
    • Prams, bikes and people can all access the trail.
    • Native animals such as bandicoots, echidnas, yellow-tailed cockatoos and kangaroos have all been spotted on the trail.
    • The trail is surfaced with approximately 450 cubic metres of recycled asphalt material, reclaimed from roads, pavements and car parks.

We all know the popularity of the Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty Summit trail and this new trail is likely to become another favourite for South Aussies, especially families with small children and people with reduced mobility, and we give that the big KIDDO thumbs up!
