Up for more adventure? Why not experience the long distance challenge of the Mawson Trail? This famous cycling trail extends from Blinman (northern Flinders Ranges) through to Adelaide in the south. Ride a section, tackle it all for an epic challenge or spread out the journey by taking on a different section every trip. The Mawson Trail treats riders to the rugged landscape of the outback and northern Flinders Ranges through the gentle rolling hills of the Southern Flinders Ranges. If you are tired of riding, take the time to walk along the Heysen Trail, which also traverses the Southern Flinders Ranges.
