Cleland Conservation Park to Mylor to Dashwood Gully Road

Sat 25 to Sun 26 Jul 2015

Walk name/location
Cleland Conservation Park to Mylor to Dashwood Gully Road
Walk grade
End-to-End Minus 1
Description

The theme for the weekend is XMAS IN JULY.

Sat.25th: A short climb to start the day sees us summitting Mt Lofty. Then its downhill through the Botanic Gardens and on through Mt George Conservation Park. This is the most populated section of the Heysen Trail skirting Crafers, Stirling and Bridgewater, although you wouldnt know it as the carefully planned trail takes us through large tracts of bushland and reserves as we make our way to Mylor.

Sun.26th: From Mylor we have a steady climb towards Echunga and into the Jupiter Creek Goldfields (bring a torch for an underground trundle). Next is our first taste of Kuitpo forest involving some undulations and perhaps some boggy stretches. The final challenge is to cross Dashwood Gully Road safely!

NOTE – If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office to register for that day. The online registering system will only allow you to register for both walking days.
