Walk 1: Cape Jervis – Cobbler Hill

Sat 22 May 2021

Walk name/location
Walk 1: Cape Jervis – Cobbler Hill
Walk grade
End-to-End 15
Description

Welcome to Walk 1 for the new End-to-End 15 group.

This first E2E Walk starts from the Cape Jervis trailhead, and follows sandy coastal tracks and exposed coastal hillsides, providing spectacular views over Backstairs Passage to Kangaroo Island.

Walkers are sometimes rewarded with sightings of seals and dolphins. At Blowhole Beach the trail enters Deep Creek Conservation Park to begin the long climb through native bushland to Cobbler Hill.

Note: If you are wishing to do this walk as a catch-up please refer to calendar as planned walks in this area are being organised throughout the year for other E2Enders to do catch-up walks without taking the place of new Heysen members wishing to commence their journey.
