Walk name/location
Dares Hill Rd – Hallet Take 2
Walk grade
End-to-End 12

After being blown off  the Mountain last year we return for another crack at the highest peak in the Mount Lofty Ranges{932mtrs}We pass Mt Bryan East Schoolhouse while walking a long section of road before our steep  ascent over  Mt Bryan. If weather permits there’s outstanding 360deg views from the top .Following undulations across the top we fall back into surrounding farmland before more road walking into Hallett .*****This is a demanding walk so if you haven’t been walking plenty of hills best not start here.******

Please note-We will be car shuffling to the start of the walk and again at the  end of walk to retrieve cars .
