Do not depart from Hahndorf before 8.30am if that is your start location; The bridge crossing over the Onkaparinga River is very dangerous because there is no footpath. Police will be in attendance from 8.45am and they will stop the traffic if necessary.
Take your mobile phone with you in case of emergency.
Carry a map: download and print, or pick one up at the start (in the trail leaflet)
If you plan to run, be aware that you may go past the drink stations before the volunteers have arrived. There will be no marshals to stop traffic; you must be very careful crossing roads.
Watch out for trail markers or you may walk the wrong way. The Pioneer Women’s Trail has now been marked with new, blue trail markers, except for the first section to the foot of Silver Road, Verdun, where there will be blue ribbons to show the way.
There will also be some large sandwich boards with directional arrows.
At some corners there will be volunteers to warn you of on-coming traffic and to direct you. These volunteers will not stop traffic.

Be Aware
Stay on marked trail to avoid causing environmental damage.
Be mindful of other people who are using the trail.

Phytophthera cinnamomi
Phytophthora attacks the roots and stems of susceptible plants and causes them to rot.

Help to prevent its spread by:
Staying on the marked trail.
Brushing soil off your shoes/boots at the stations provided.
Not taking them home to clean.
