Inman Valley to Myponga

Sun 23 Oct 2016

Walk name/location
Inman Valley to Myponga
Walk grade
End-to-End 11
Description

A very undulating walk starting with a climb up Sugarloaf Hill and on to Moon Hill, each offering spectactular rural views. With more ups & downs through the native bushland in the Myponga Conservation Park.

The back half of the day sees us walking through pretty farmland and along quiet country roads.

After leaving the trail at Yulte Road we have a 2 klms walk to the cars.

After the finish of the walk there will an end of season celebration with a Christmas Theme which we hope you all will stay for. A time to enjoy the company of your fellow walkers & reflect upon our first season on the Heysen Trail.

So bring something to share and maybe wear something to engender the forthcoming Christmas spirit and finish the season off in a joyous mood.
