Tugwell Rd to Inman Valley – E2E17

Sun 30 Jul 2023

Walk name/location
Tugwell Rd to Inman Valley – E2E17
Walk grade
End-to-End 17

Unfortunately, due to ongoing road works at Tappanappa, and the deterioration of Tunk Head Rd leading into Balquhidder, we will walk from Tugwell Rd through to Inman Valley.

This section follows country roads, farm paddock fencelines, forest trails and road reserves. Native orchids, grass trees, abundant birdlife and classic Fleurieu farmland views make this a pleasant walk to remember.

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.

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
