“Traverse country roads, laneways and bush tracks through the Hahndorf area in the Adelaide Hills on this 26km walk.”
The Pioneer Women’s Trail honours the early European settlers who supplied Adelaide with fresh produce at a time when most fresh food was imported. From 1838, women and girls carrying baskets of vegetable and dairy products for sale would leave Hahndorf at midnight and walk through rough bush track to Adelaide 35km away. Their route was mapped out in 1980 and turned into a recreational trail. The trail winds through the back streets of Bridgewater, following Cox Creek before heading across Mt George Conservation Park and out to Stirling. With its many cafes, Stirling is a great spot to relax and refuel before carrying on. The trail then continues through Crafers and Cleland Conservation Park before leading to an opening where you’ll be rewarded with stunning city views. You’ll then pass historic Beaumont House before reaching the end of the trail in Burnside.
