Walk name/location
Kapunda to Hamilton to Peters Hill
Walk grade
End-to-End 6
Description

SATURDAY: From Kapunda we head northwest along backroads and tracks to Black Joes Road, then mainly north along fence lines and tracks to the old telephone exchange at the crossroads. The walk is over undulating mainly open country of the lower North Mount Lofty Ranges.

SUNDAY: A pleasant walk along back roads and road reserves of open scrubland. After the short walk up Peters Hill, walkers are rewarded with pretty vistas over the farmlands of the Lower North. We will take a short detour to visit Marshalls Hut.

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.

The THEME for the weekend will be HALLOWEEN. Unlike our usual themes the theme will extend into the Saturday night dinner.
