Cape Jervis to Cobbler Hill

Sun 6 May 2018

Walk name/location
Cape Jervis to Cobbler Hill
Walk grade
End-to-End 13
Description

E2E13 is the 13th group to walk the Heysen Trail starting at Cape Jervis and finishing at Parachilna Gorge 6yrs later.

From the Cape Jervis trailhead, this section follows sandy coastal tracks and exposed coastal hillsides, providing spectacular views over Backstairs Passage to Kangaroo Island.

Walkers are often 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.

Please note that the bus does not take you from Adelaide to the start of the walk. The arrangement is that you will drive to near the walk and the bus assists with transporting you from the meeting location to the start of the walk.

Further information about the meeting location will be provided after you have registered for the walk.
