This is a lovely trail along the length of the Torrens river to Henley beach. It is well maintained, and well signposted in terms of distance to the city and the beach. A great place to ride a bike!!

I hired a Adelaide city free bike from the north Adelaide par 3 course & my 7 year old & I went for a lovely ride along the Torrens. He had a bike, so it didn't cost anything. The paths are in great conditions & there always plenty of activity to see along the way. Birds, creeks flowing & paddle... More

The path/trail is good for a casual ride. It gets a bit messy if you are looking for a fast paced ride. Some of the path needs a bit of repair but overall a lovely trail for a walk or bike ride with family and or friends.

After having seen the Mekong and Mississippi River, the Torrens is the most impressive stream of water I have ever encountered. We took the rafting survival tour and it was awesome. We ate wild salmon, and booked the additional crocodile tour. That's where we 'lost' my mother in law. Hope the piranhas got the better of her, although I doubt... More

If you enjoy a long walk then, as others have said, the River Torrens Linear Park Trail is superb. People tend to concentrate on the city section and the trek down to the beach, which is excellent but does have some industrialised parts and takes you to West Beach which is still a step from the facilities of Glenelg or...

I rode a short distance from Henley towards the city on this track. Not as much bike & people traffic as along the beach track. Horses, swans, ducks, beautiful trees & peaceful. The track was a little rough in a few areas & small rises but overall flat & level, highly recommend.

I had to get fit so started walking this. Can't believe I live so close to this but haven't been taking it in.

Borrowing a bike for Free ! from the BikesSA for the day then utilized the trail to bike from Adelaide out to Henley Beach. Jumped in the ocean and had lunch then headed back via same trail. Great way to spend the day and go at our own pace

I have skated this trail few times with roller skates. The pavement is good when in Henley beach and in Adelaide. In between it is sometimes bit too low quality for skating purposes. However, for biking it is good enough. Enjoy the outdoors with all kinds of animals including cockatoos, pelicans, and horses.

Great for cycling and walking and most places Gophers. We cycled from Tea Tree Plaza to Henley and from Paradise to top track, near Gorge Road and from Paradise as far as Bonython Park on a number of occasions. Significant risk of taking a wrong turn and getting lost even with "she who has a good memory and reads directions"!... More
