Walk 7. Inman Valley – Myponga

Sat 9 Oct 2021

Walk name/location
Walk 7. Inman Valley – Myponga
Walk grade
End-to-End 15
Description

A very undulating walk. Majestic gums line roadsides leading to testing climb up Sugarloaf Hill where walkers are rewarded with spectacular rural views.

The trail then leads into Myponga Conservation Park for more views and some more testing undulations. Pretty farmland and quiet country roads complete this section.

There is a 2km walk to the cars after leaving the trail on Yulte Road.

To be confirmed: As this is our final official Heysen walk for 2021 you have the option to check the box for a meal and join the leaders for a light meal/snacks at the Similing Samoyed Brewery after the walk
