Inman Valley to Myponga

Sat 18 Jun 2022

Walk name/location
Inman Valley to Myponga
Walk grade
Trail Walker
Description

The Heysen Trail walks are demanding and suitable for experienced walkers who have walked regularly in various terrain consisting of long-distance trails with some steep inclines/declines, irregular surface with loose uneven, slippery base. They have a walking time of about 5 to 7 hours and will require a high degree of physical fitness.

Majestic gums line roadsides leading to the testing climb up Sugarloaf Hill where walkers are rewarded with spectacular rural views. The trail then leads into Myponga Conservation Park for more views and some testing undulations. Pretty farmland and quiet country roads complete this section. This is a reasonably tough 19kms so Trail Walker level experience and fitness is required.
