Day 1 Saturday – Mt Compass – Kyeema
The pretty dairy pastures of Mt Compass and Nangkita provide the backdrop for the first section of this walk. Back roads then lead walkers up a steady incline through to Finniss Conservation Park and into Mt Magnificent Conservation Park, where a short steep hike off the main trail which will reward walkers with spectacular views from Mt. Magnificent over the southern Fleurieu Peninsula.
A combination of native bushland then back-road walking completes the day.
Fitness: 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 good degree of physical fitness.
Day 2 Sunday – Kyeema – Dashwood Gully
The walk starts off in the dense native bushland of Kyeema Conservation Park, and then the plantations of Kuitpo Forest. The walking here is gently undulating sandy trails.
We cross over a couple of main arterial roads where care needs to be taken.
We then exit Kuitpo Forest onto Stagecoach Road for the return to the cars.
