New mountain bike and walking trails at Mylor Adventure Camp

New mountain bike and walking trails enrich recreational opportunities on offer at Mylor Adventure Camp.

 

The Baptist Care SA Adventure team at Mylor Adventure Camp is thrilled to have received a grant to help establish a network of new mountain bike and walking trails for campers of all skill levels to enjoy. This will involve building seven new trails of varying difficulty.

 

As part of a broader plan to upgrade the site, the new project will allow the campsite to be even more inclusive; enriching the recreational opportunities on offer for people of all skill, confidence levels and abilities.

 

Nearly 600 people with a disability visited the campsite in 2018. Baptist Care SA has a long-term commitment to assist people with disabilities and other special needs to access our campsite activities.

 

The trails will be built at various grades and gradients, with mountain bike trails ranging from beginner to intermediate, and walking trails catering for people of all abilities. Some of the trails will also be wheelchair accessible.

 

“The project will make our beautiful native Mylor bushland more accessible to our participants, create opportunities for people to build fitness and confidence and try activities they’ve never done before,” says Senior Manager Tobin Hanna. 

 

Construction of the Mylor Trail Project is expected to be complete by Term 4 this year.

 

The Mylor Trail Project has been funded by Sport Australia’s Move It Aus – Community Sport Infrastructure Grants Program
