Description

On Sunday … Warren Gorge to Eyre Depot.

An early start will take us driving to Warren Gorge to start from there.

After climbing over the saddle we will enter Mount Arden Creek and wind our way southwards. The winding creek bed with its waterfalls and rocky sections can make progress very slow. Leaving the ranges will have us arriving at Eyre Depot … and then only a short walk to meet the bus waiting to take us back to Warren Gorge to collect our cars.

On Sunday … Woolshed flat to Quorn.

A steady climb to start the day takes walkers to the top of the range and views over Pichi Richi Pass. After descending into the pass again, the Trail follows the historic Pichi Richi railway line, passing the remnants of deserted sidings and settlements.

NOTE – If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office to register for that days walk. The online registering system will only allow you to register for both days.
