Trail Information

The trail starts at the Reserve at the mouth of the river off Bridge Terrace.

From here it winds through picturesque nature reserves on the outskirts of Victor Harbor and ends at about the corner between Cudmore Road and Wattle Terrace.

This is just after the second footbridge and where a tree across the river prevents further access upstream.
