Tanunda-Kapunda with End To End 14

Sun 7 Aug 2022

Walk name/location
Tanunda-Kapunda with End To End 14
Walk grade
End-to-End 14
Description

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.

This section takes walkers along back roads and road reserves past vineyards and wineries of the Barossa Valley, through the small town of Greenock and into the cropping and grazing land of the Lower North. It is a long but mainly flat walk with only a few undulations. Pleasant vistas and changing seasonal colours make this a pretty walk, with a finish at Kapunda in easy walking distance to bakeries or pubs.
