Walk name/location
Cudlee Creek – Nugget Rd
Walk grade
End-to-End 14
Description

The trail leads walkers through the rolling hills of the South Mt Lofty Ranges and sections of Mt Crawford Forest. The climb towards Mt Gould provides outstanding views.

As this is E2E14’s last official Heysen walk for the year we have the meals option for you to select and the plan is after the walk we hop in our cars and drive to Federation Park at Gumeracha and share and “light meal” of snags on the bar-b along with wraps and sushi  (there will be vegetarian options in the later 2)  There will be a couple of drinks eskys with the usual selection of drinks for you to purchase but also feel free BYO what you want to drink and don’t forget your deck chair

Risks
Hazards

COVID-19 measures – you will need to adhere to social distancing at this event:

  1. I declare that if I experience any respiratory symptoms (even if mild) before the walk, I will immediately self-isolate, seek medical advice and cancel my registration for the event.
  2. When attending the walk I will:
    • observe social distancing practices
    • maintain personal hygiene (apply hand sanitiser and protect others if I cough/sneeze)
    • not share drink bottles, eating utensils, other personal items and equipment.

The Union Bridge in Cudlee Creek is arguably the most dangerous crossing of the entire trail we will keep to the left hand side so that you are visible to vehicles from both directions. Just to add a little more danger, recent roadworks have created another danger spot on the North East Rd – We will group up prior to entering danger zones and be posting leaders as lookouts to alert walkers of impending danger.
