Tugwell Road to Inman Valley

Sun 25 Sep 2016

Walk name/location
Tugwell Road to Inman Valley
Walk grade
End-to-End 11
Description

Having left the coast the trail enters the South Mount Lofty Ranges for what is a gently undulating walk through native bushland and private grazing land along quiet country roads and attractive road reserves. A number of the short climbs during the walk offer some classic Fleurieu farmland views.

Some parts of the walk can be a little wet and boggy but native orchids, grass trees and abundant birdlife more than compensate for any adverse conditions under foot.
