Summer Walks
Description

A loop walk starting from Brock Reserve with a pleasant climb up towards Mt Osmond golf course offering some splendid views back across  Adelaide to the gulf. From near the golf course we cross  Mt  Osmond Road into Themeda Reserve descending before again crossing Mt Osmond  Road prior to a zig-zag climb back into Mt Osmond Reserve for the final gentle descent back to our cars.

Apart from the short zig-zag climb towards the end of the walk the initial climb up to near the golf course is relatively easy. There may be a opportunity for the more adventurous walkers to follow a steeper section and then rejoin the group.

This is another attempt at the walk that was to have been held on Feb 18 (cancelled due to the heat).
