Dares Hill Summit Road to Hallett and EE George Quarry to Spalding Road. Based in Burra

Walk name/location
Dares Hill Summit Road to Hallett and EE George Quarry to Spalding Road. Based in Burra
Walk grade
End-to-End 6
Description

Due to the road conditions the walk on 17 August had to be abandoned. In its place the group did the Hallett to EE George Quarry walk. Hence the walks for this weekend have been rescheduled.

SATURDAY 30 AUGUST

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 31 AUGUST

Although progressing northwards along the trail, most of this walk is spent walking south! We follow The Stone Wall – an old station boundary, and the longest dry stone wall in SA – for 12km south, along Brown Hill Range. We leave the ridge line and follow rural back roads to the main Spalding to Burra road.

THEME FOR THE WEEKEND – ‘B’

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.
