Walk name/location
Mount Compass to Myponga to Inman Valley
Walk grade
End-to-End Minus 1
Description

The theme for the weekend is “CONES”.

Sat.26th: Beginning with a long, steady climb up Woodcone Road, we then enter cow country on our way to Mount Cone for views down to Victor Harbor. Generally following ridges, we get to the small but diverse Yulte Conservation Park before making our way down towards Myponga.

Sun.27th: We begin with pretty farmland and quiet country roads then climb towards Myponga Conservation Park for views and some testing undulations. More spectacular rural views as we approach Sugarloaf Hill before a steep descent down to gum-lined road walking into Inman Valley.

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.
