Description

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

SATURDAY 27 October

The trail once again crosses over the Tothill Range and back providing expansive views across the surrounding farmlands and Apoinga Lagoon. A sharp climb after Huppatz Hut and an at times tricky descent back to Burra Road provides a fore taste of things to come in future walks.

SUNDAY 28th October

A short walk across paddocks to the Morgan-Whyalla pipeline is followed by an interesting walk through an area of the Halleluja Hills before reaching Worlds End Road. Once off this road we finish near the Burra Gorge campground.

Both these walk are quite delightful and provide a fitting finale to this seasons walking.

The theme for our dinner on Saturday night is Halloween.
