- End-to-End 12
Sat 21st-For most of this section the trail follows gravel roads and a rollercoaster firetrack through natural bushland towards the TV tower where walkers are rewarded with spectacular views of the gulf and beyond.The tower never seems to get any closer (it’s just over the next Hill) i think ?
Following the closure of the trail along the Crystal Brook, north of Bowman Park, this section now commences with a road walk continuing along Bowman Park Road past Bowman Park, turning north east along Huddleston Road. The Trail then turns north up Head Road, continuing until Pipeline Road, which it then follows until reaching Head Road and following that to the Wilkins Highway and Hughes Gap. After Hughes Gap the Trail meets the southern most hills of the Flinders Ranges and the Trail gradually climbs to the top of the range to reveal views over Port Pirie and Spencer Gulf.
**Please sanitise hands and wear a mask before boarding the bus***
BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
