- Extended Walk
An opportunity for walkers to experience another 6 memorable sections of the Heysen Trail in a “single hit” from where last year’s Fleurieu to Mt Lofty walk finished in the Cleland Conservation Park just below the summit of Mt Lofty to continue the journey north through more of the picturesque countryside of the Adelaide Hills into the southern reaches of the Barossa Valley finishing a little north of Tanunda. The walks wend there way through numerous delightful Conservation Parks and State Forest areas, along undulating back roads, and past vineyards and grazing lands with a few challenging hills thrown in for everyone’s pleasure.
Another full week of walking on the Trail designed to enable walkers especially those from beyond Adelaide, whether from intrastate or interstate, the opportunity to complete these beautiful sections in a single block rather than the normal schedule of an End to End group.
Those walkers who undertook one or both the Fleurieu to Mt Lofty walk in 2021 or the South Coast walk in 2020 will be offered an Early Registration Link to register for the weeks walking on Wednesday 20th July, two weeks prior to the public opening of Registrations on Wednesday 3rd August.
Please note this an Extended Walk for people wanting to do the entire week of walking and not those wishing to do selected day walks.
REGISTRATION REQUIRES PAYMENT OF THE FULL EVENT FEE which covers all walk fees and bus costs. To register for these walks you must be a member of the Friends of the Heysen Trail.
The walk leaders are the same as for the 2 previous years weeks of walking.. All are currently leading End to End groups and have each completed the trail on one or more occasions.
For each walk, walkers will need to drive themselves to the end location for the walk, from where a bus will take them to the start of the walk. It should be noted the meeting location for each of the walks is generally around an hour’s drive or less from Adelaide. Those coming from interstate or intrastate locations may choose stay in Adelaide for the first 3 walks and then in the Barossa for the second 3 walks.
Except for the last walk, all these walks are challenging, especially the first 3 walks which include a number of steep climbs and tricky descents, so please ensure you come well and truly physically prepared for a tough though rewarding week of walking on the Heysen Trail.
Given the continued and rising number of Covid cases we are asking all walkers TO COMPLETE A RA TEST in the 24 HOURS prior to the start of the walks on Monday 29th September.
Should you have any questions about the walk please feel free to contact John Babister at: email@example.com or on 0409616270
