Dear Footsteps Followers,
We have a Short Footsteps Newsletter Reminder especially for the Webb Gap Opening.

G'day everyone, Please forgive us for sending out an extra short (out of step) Footsteps. Many of you have already heard about the opening, and plan to come, but we would like to reach out to those who might have been too busy to read that last newsletter, we hope you can make it to celebrate with us.

Grand opening of the
Jailbreak Trail - Monarto
24th April 2016.

The weekend following the Webb Gap activities, on Sunday 24th April, another new trail network will be opened at Monarto.

There are currently two loop and one spur trails as well as the main trail offering a number of options for walkers and mountain bikers.

The day’s activities get underway at 10.00 am with three grades of mountain bike rides (expert, intermediate & beginner), runners and then walkers. All activities will be led by guides and are of different lengths to suit all grades of fitness and experience.

The event is designed as a social and fun event not competitive. Maps will be available on the day when registering.

All those attending will be provided a BBQ lunch and drinks.

The official opening of the trail network will be 12.00 noon.

Location is off Maurice Road, several hundred metres past the entrance to the Mobilong Prison. The entrance will be signposted. Maurice Road is the first set of traffic lights on Princess Highway in Murray Bridge if coming from Adelaide. Turn left into Maurice Road at these traffic lights to the event.


Maps Available - You can buy them at the Opening! Map 4 Truro to Eudunda has been released and is available at all outlets stocking Lavender Federation Trail maps and brochures. A list of map outlets can be accessed from our website Map 5 will be produced when the trail gets to the next townships after Webb Gap.

Lavender Trail MapMap 4 follows a similar format to previous maps with details of the trail route, distances, land contours and route details of interest plus some additional information not on previous maps.

Walkers using this area of the trail should be aware of very steep terrain particularly near Leake Lookout (refer to the contour chart), mobile phone coverage may be unavailable and vehicle access limited in some areas. 

As always, we ask trail users always to stay on the marked trail and respect local landowners and their stock. This section of trail uses more private land than any other part of the trail with the permission of the landowner. The route of the trail has been influenced to a large extent from local residents with many landowners not only building the trail across their property but volunteering to maintain it.
