Description

The Willunga Basin Trail winds its way around and across the Willunga Basin for 130km: taking walkers through a diverse landscape of bushland, forests, vineyards, almond groves, parks and beaches. It links the townships of McLaren Vale, McLaren Flat, Kangarilla, and Willunga to the suburbs of Aldinga, Port Willunga, Maslin Beach, Moana and Seaford. It has been created and developed by volunteers. The Friends program aims to cover the loop over 6 walks.

WALK 5: Today the walk leaves from Ironbark picnic area, meandering through Kuitpo Forest – we may come across a small section of the Heysen Trail – a gentle rise to Mt Wilson and descending to McLaren Flat. Terrain follows forest tracks, road reserves and a bit of road: the 17km includes an occasional undulation but no major climbs.

Sufficient water for a day, hat, sunscreen and lunch are essential.

Please be aware of FOHT weather policies regarding cancellation of walks and adherence to Covid requirements. THIS WALK WILL USE A BUS so participants should use hand sanitiser and wear a face mask throughout the bus trip.
