Easy track
Starting from Cobbler Creek MTB car park, Salisbury East, this circuit track goes along a stream whilst giving you a taste of Cobbler Creek Recreation Park. The Mai Tappa Circuit is named after the Kaurna term for "food pathway" and showcases aspects of the Kaurna culture, emphasizing the importance of plants and animals in their daily lives. This track offers beautiful views of Kau­r­na country, from the tree-filled gul­lies to the hilly terrain. The track is dog-friendly, but pets must be on a leash at all times. However, the track can be rocky and narrow in some sections and is quite slippery when it's muddy. Bikes are not permitted on this track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Kaurna people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
