Description

Exploring trails in the Mitcham / Brown Hill area, we will ascend Brown Hill, taking our time for breaks and to admire the city views, before venturing into Springwood Park to follow the trail down the eastern side of Brown Hill, some sections of long grass, narrow trail, steep decline and loose underfoot.  Crossing Brownhill Creek we join the Wirraparinga Loop for a pleasant (and flat) return back to our cars.

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.
