On SATURDAY 24th JULY

A terrific though challenging walk starting with a testing climb out of Horrocks Pass to the ridgetop followed by an undulating exposed traverse over gibber-littered hills and farmlands at times providing some stunning views over the Willochra Plains to the east and occasionally over Spencer Gulf to the west. At the end of the walk there is almost 3 klms walk-out from the Trail through farmlands back to our cars.

On SUNDAY 25th JULY

Commencing with a brilliant little climb over Lavender Peak, aptly named after principal architect of the Heysen Trail, to get the heart pumping prior to a tricky descent to the picturesque Stony Creek campsite. From there the trail crisscrosses the creek(which at times has proven to be a challenge to cross), follows tracks, backroads and a final undulating walk adjacent to the busy highway through Horrocks Pass to finish at the memorial to explorer John Horrocks.

Dinner on Saturday evening will be at the North Star Hotel from 7.00pm. Suggest we could meet for drinks from 6.30pm.
