The Coast to Vines rail trail open to pedestrians and cyclists, runs for 34 km through the southern suburbs of Adelaide from Marino to Willunga. Much of the trail has been constructed on the disused Willunga railway line.

The northern end of the trail continues from the Marino Rocks Greenway near the Marino Rocks railway station, on The Cove Road. From here it follows the Seaford railway line until Hallett Cove station where it shares the footbridge over the line. A short distance away are Hallett Cove shops, where it crosses Lonsdale Highway and proceeds through a picturesque area of Trott Park. The right turn into Old South Road at the intersection of Panalatinga Road is the start of the section of the trail along the old railway line, with trees lining both sides to Hackham. The path is completely off road, but it does cross roads, especially in this area of the trail. The path and the roads are clearly signposted. The path crosses Christies Creek and a number of other small creeks along this section. Continuing on will take the rider to the Onkaparinga River and from there to McLaren Vale and Willunga.

The trail is an easy ride and suitable for beginners, families and more experienced riders.

The former railway line stations were Patpa, Happy Valley, Reynella, Coorara, Morphett Vale, Yetto, Hackham, Korro, Noarlunga, Moana, Tuni, McLaren Vale, Pikkara, Taringa and Willunga.

The trail is mostly complete, with a small section along the main street of Mclaren Vale yet to be finished. It intersects with the Adelaide Southern Veloway at both Panalatinga Road turnoff and Southern end of the Southern Expressway.
