Sun 8 Sep 2024

Walk name/location
Mylor to Cleland – EE17
Walk grade
End-to-End 17
Description

Although the most populous section of the trail, it still retains a rural feel as walkers pass through the parks and bushland of Mylor, Bridgewater, Mt George Conservation Park, Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens and Cleland National Park.

Walk Difficulty – 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.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
