Cape Jervis to Cobbler Hill

Sat 14 Aug 2021

Walk name/location
Cape Jervis to Cobbler Hill
Walk grade
Trail Walker

This walk starts from the Cape Jervis Heysen Trail trailhead, this section follows sandy coastal tracks and exposed coastal hillsides, providing spectacular views over Backstairs Passage to Kangaroo Island. Walkers are sometimes rewarded with sightings of seals and dolphins. At Blowhole Beach the trail enters Deep Creek Conservation Park to begin the long climb through native bushland to Cobbler Hill.

This is normally the first walk of E2Es and one of the reasons it is being run again is not only because it is a lovely walk for everyone to do, but also to assist people that have joined an E2E further up the trail to allow them to get this walk in as a catch-up and thereby keeping spots free on the new E2Es for people wanting to commence their journey of the whole trail.  If you are needing this walk as a catch-up walk can you please email Mark Fletcher by clicking the name in red below and let me know which E2E you are on before the walk opens for bookings.
