Do not visit the Clare Valley without spending some time either riding or walking this beautiful trail. With easy access to wineries, beautiful countryside and well maintained track it was an absolute highlight of our recent trip to Clare.

Great trail even for novice cyclists. Great places to stop, eat and drink along the way. You can hire bikes if you don't have any. You do need to wear helmets.
