Starting in the foothills a pleasant half day leisurely ride aided by a slight slope most of the way. A meandering sealed trail passing through a variety of different settings and landscapes with plenty of places to stop along the way

Fantastic walking/cycle path from the city to Henley Beach. Some parts undulating, but nothing to big. About an hours easy ride for 50+ couple. You are spoilt for choice once you reach Henley Square for a meal, from breakfast to dinner, or just grab a ice cream cake or a coffee.

Walked along here with the kids, and easy walk. We enjoyed the sculptures on the river and the bird life. An enjoyable morning.

The Linear park can be used for a fun day out, hire a bike from the kiosk at the Torrens Weir and then ride along the Linear park path to the coast at Henley Beach. No need to cross any roads, the path goes under them, it's not a strenuous ride, the trail is undulating. Once at Henley beach it's... More

I'm a local here and love the linear trail. It has a nice even surface, great scenery and good lighting. It is safe and parts of it go through the CBD. This would be a fine place for tourists to walk off lunch, and maybe go for a cruise.

You can stroll along the water for a long or short walk. Well lit at night time but foot traffic can be light late at night and especially in winter time.
