South Australian mountain biking boost

The O'Halloran Hill Recreation Park, just south of Adelaide, has added 13 kilometres of new mountain bike trails, and there's something for everyone to enjoy.

The national park is well-known and loved within the mountain bike community, and these new trails are set to secure the love affair for many years to come by offering something to suit all skill levels of rider.

The uniquely named trails include Glow Flow, which is designed for kids and beginners, Sylvian Families, which is a family-friendly trail with a forest backdrop, and Haarsma's Vision, named after the late friend of and great contributor to O'Halloran Hill Recreation Park, Pete Haarsma.
