Facilities
There is a water tank, small shelter, benches, information signage and trailhead stile here.

Water supply is sometimes overused due to the adjacent road, carpark and 4WD drivers. Hikers may need to walk 500 metres south to the Parachilna Gorge Hikers campsite to find more readily available water.

  1. On 14/9/2019 the tank at the trailhead next to the road was empty. The tank at the Parachilna heysen campsite was also empty.

  2. Paused here on 15th July ’19 to say that at long last I have finished the 1200km Heysen Trail. Plenty of information signs regarding the area plus info regarding the Heysen Trail. The water tank was over half full. I then had to walk another 13km to the Pairie Hotel in Parachilna.
