Dares Hill Summit Road to Hallett to EE George Quarry

Sat 22 to Sun 23 Jul 2017

Walk name/location
Dares Hill Summit Road to Hallett to EE George Quarry
Walk grade
End-to-End 9

On Saturday…

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.

On Sunday…

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.

NOTE – If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office to register for that days walk. The online registering system will only allow you to register for both days.
