Sunday – Dares Hill Summit Rd to Hallett – 20km,  The trail takes walkers past the historic Mt Bryan East School, before beginning the climb up Mt Bryan, which is the highest point of the Mt Lofty Ranges. Walkers are rewarded with panoramic views of the Mid-North from the summit and as they descend through grazing and farming land towards Hallett.

Walk Difficulty – The Heysen Trail walks are demanding and suitable for experienced walkers who have walked regularly in various terrain consisting of long-distance trails with some steep inclines/declines, irregular surface with loose uneven, slippery base. They have a walking time of about 5 to 7 hours and will require a good degree of physical fitness.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.

Meal details

Hi All,

Lets all get this year’s socials off and running. After the first weekend away we are all back on track ( pardon the pun) and ready to socialise.

For this walk and before the weather turns too bleak it would be great to have a BBQ and a campfire.

We will be based in Burra and have flagged a couple of sites with bbqs and an area to mingle afterwards. The exact location will be confirmed once we have checked these out on the first walk.

BBQ Sausages and Patties will be provided along with bread and sauces for a minimal fee. $5.00 per head.
If you have any non meat preferences could you please bring your own and enjoy the bread and sauces at no charge.

We will ask for everyone to contribute to either a savoury or sweet option for the rest of the meal. Nothing huge or troublesome just a plate for sharing.

This will be done by having men bringing savoury and women bringing sweet. Next time we have a BYO we will swap it over.

The campfire will be lit so we can gather around for a few games, listening to some tunes or if you would like you could toast some marshmallows.

Our theme for the evening will be WEAR AN APRON.. an essential item for BBQ ing.

Looking forward to catching up with you all then.

Jo
