One of the most well-known trails in the McLaren Vale wine region is the Shiraz Trail. The 8km walking and cycling track stretches from McLaren Vale to Willunga and has been constructed along a disused rail corridor.

This iconic trail is favourite among locals and visitors because of its mostly flat terrain and vineyard views.

You can opt for a leisurely stroll, jog or cycle along the Shiraz Trail from McLaren Vale through to the township of Willunga to experience the historic town, cellar doors, Farmer's Market or take one of the detours available on route:

Choose to venture North East off of the Shiraz Trail near Railway Terrace in McLaren Vale to explore the 3.6km scenic trail for families, runners, riders and walkers, known as the Flat to Vale Trail. This section connects the townships of McLaren Vale and McLaren Flat and provides access to cellar doors on Foggo Road.

Or, take pause at McMurtrie Road to experience the many cellar doors along the McMurtrie Mile.
