Myponga to Mt Compass
A lovely walk to start our second year on the trail. Starting along Yulte Rd the trail enters Yulte CP, a small but delightful bushland park with a few testing ups and downs more than compensated by the wonderful views. After leaving the park the trail passes through picturesque farmland before crossing Hindmarsh Tiers Rd and onto Lawless Lane past the Myponga Pistol Club firing range. Entering more farmland the trail continues up to and past Mt.Cone (a short walk off the trail to the summit offers distant views over Victor Harbor to the south)before commencing the downhill road walk on Woodcone Rd to the old dairy factory.
As the bus cannot go along Yulte Rd there is a 1/2 kilometre walk from the Stephens Rd to the start of the trail.
