Sat 25 to Sun 26 Aug 2018

Walk name/location
Kapunda to Hamilton to Peters Hill
Walk grade
End-to-End 11
Description

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.

On Saturday: A pleasant walk following back roads, tracks and fence lines through the undulating farmland of the Lower North.

On Sunday: This section of the Trail follows back roads and road reserves of open scrub land, before a short walk up Peters Hill, where walkers are rewarded with pretty vistas over the farmlands of the lower Mid North.

We will have a BBQ at the caravan park on the Saturday evening. Please bring your own meat, and a salad or sweet to share. If you would like to join in some fun, the self-appointed social committee suggest a low fuss theme for the weekend. As we are going to KAPunda, bring along a Krazy KAP (or not so crazy cap/hat) to wear at the BBQ.
