Mt Compass to Kyeema
Starting from the Old Dairy Factory, 1.5 south of Mt Compass the trail crosses the Victor Harbor Rd before moving through the dairy pastures of Mt Compass and Nangkita. Then it follows undulating back roads past a section of the Finniss River before a climb along the boundary of the Finniss Con. Park and up over more dairy pastures prior to entering into the Mt Magnificent Con. Park, where a short hike off the main trail to the summit rewards walkers with spectacular views over the southern Fleurieu Peninsula.
Upon leaving the park the trail crosses over Blackfellows Creek Rd into a short section of native bushland before finishing the day with a road walk surrounded by open grazing land.
