Heysen Trail route restored near Chain of Ponds and Kersbrook
The temporary reroute of the Heysen Trail due to the Sampson Flat fireground has finally been removed. The last section of the trail through the Mt Crawford Forest near Chain of Ponds and Kersbrook has now been restored.
The devastating fire in the January 2015 resulted in a substantial reroute of the trail. Following work by Forestry SA to clear areas of the forest, the trail has been progressively returned to the original route.
However, until this week the reroute included an extended road walk along South Para Rd near Chain of Ponds and Kersbrook.
The restoration of the trail also includes a small realignment at Chain of Ponds. The trail has been improved and re-routed where it crosses North East Road.
The minor reroute can be viewed:
