Dares Hill Summit Rd to Hallett to EE George Quarry

Sat 9 to Sun 10 Jul 2022

Walk name/location
Dares Hill Summit Rd to Hallett to EE George Quarry
Walk grade
End-to-End 13

Saturday – Dares Hill Summit Rd to Hallett: The trail takes walkers past the historic Mt Bryan East School, before beginning the climb up Mt Bryan, which is the highest point of the Mt Lofty Ranges. Walkers are rewarded with panoramic views of the Mid-North from the summit and as they descend through grazing and farming land towards Hallett.

Sunday – Hallett to EE George Quarry: A gently undulating walk, mainly along rural back roads and road reserves. The seasonally changing hues of the surrounding farmland make this a unique and pleasant walk.

If you would like to register for only one of the walk days, PLEASE call the office to register after registrations are open
