Trails Less Travelled | Mount Lofty | 16 Oct 2016


Trails Less Travelled – hike Mt Lofty from a different direction Sunday 16 October 2016 8am-1pm

Most Adelaidians are familiar with the Waterfall Gully track to Mt Lofty Summit but did you know there are at least 9 other routes that can get you to the top? Come and join one of these hosted walks and discover some of the lesser known trails exploring Cleland Conservation Park and the trails beyond.

There are walk options to suit everybody. If you’re after a serious climb along forest trails to get your heart pumping, a gentle ramble to take in the scenery or something in between, then there is a suitable walk for you. Check out the options and choose from various lengths, terrain and starting points. All walks will start at 8am and will be led by one of the member clubs so you don’t even need to read a map! Registration is free.

Once you’re at the top, you can refresh yourself at the Summit Cafe and stroll among the stall holders in the summit courtyard.
