    Good trails/crawling spots near adelaide?

    There are some pretty good places NW of Adelaide, but the best one I have found is at -35.2165651, 138.4721608. Follow the paths south west until you get to the red lumpy place you can see on the map. From there is a nice trail with some challenging parts going down to the beach, once you reach the beach go back up again.
    Anyone else know any good places for a crawl or trail run?

    Humbug scrub seems like a good spot, I will definitely check it out. I know there used to be some good full sized spots there, but I would guess they are all closed now. I will have a look at hillbank too.

    I have an RC4WD Trailfinder 2 with coil springs and some other upgrades.

    Humbug scrub past para wirra rec park follow road until steep descent to a creek. Left hand side is the crawling side right hand side is sa water controlled and have signs and usual crap. I used to drive my sierra across all the rocks there but they've blocked it off. You can still park and walk though its an epic trek. Nice Yota got it flexing good with the coileez

    Crawling in SA

    I hate to direct folks way from forums and permanently available information, but there is a strong South Australian Facebook group running at the moment, with comps and socials fairly regularly.

    Hope you find some joy, don't forget to come back and spread the word.

    I thought I replied to this but it seems like I haven't.

    I actually have that exact spot marked down because I was going to see if you can drive a full size there. Seems like a good place, I will go there soon.

    Leaf springs were good, but it flexes so much more with coils.
