Description

Essentially a loop walk starting from Brock Reserve with a pleasant climb up to Mt Osmond golf course offering some splendid views back across Adelaide to the gulf. From near the golf course we will follow the Old Bullock Trail before dropping down towards Waterfall Gully then returning to the Old Bullock Trail and prior to going back past the golf course to cross Mt Osmond Road  and enter Themeda Reserve. From there we descend crossing Mt Osmond Road a couple of more times before a zig-zag climb back into Mt Osmond Reserve for the final gentle descent back to our cars.

This a relatively comfortable walk as the climb up to the golf course is not steep and the zig-zag climb is sharp but quite short.

There will be a short stop for morning tea.
