Investigators are examining the circumstances surrounding a crash in the Adelaide Hills which has left a motorcyclist dead.

The 34-year-old rider from Salisbury Heights was killed when her bike crashed on a hairpin bend on Mount Barker Road in Leawood Gardens on Saturday afternoon.

Road closures were in place at the Eagle on the Hill turn-off with motorists asked to avoid the area on Saturday evening.

The woman's death brings South Australia's road toll to 33 compared with 38 at the same time last year.
