Cudlee Creek to Montacute to Cleland Conservation Park

Sat 27 to Sun 28 Jun 2015

Walk name/location
Cudlee Creek to Montacute to Cleland Conservation Park
Walk grade
End-to-End Minus 1

The theme for the weekend is “SILVER”

Sat.27th – We are definitely in the Adelaide HILLS this weekend. Leaving Cudlee Creek, we have a steady climb to Thomas Hill and on through lovely bushland to Montacute Conservation Park shadowed by Mt. Misery and overlooking Kangaroo Creek reservoir. Then its the biggy – a serious climb up to Montacute Heights before some road walking to finish the day.

Sun.28th – ** Note** – An early start today. A long day which is both testing and rewarding with a variety of terrain, vegetation and views. This section has many ups and downs passing through the dense bushland of Morialta Conservation Park, Horsnell Gully and Cleland and along roadsides, rewarding walkers with spectacular views over Adelaide and the Hills.

NOTE – If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FoHT office Ph.(08) 8212 6299 to register for that day. The online registering system will only allow you to register for both walking days.
