After an initial road walk, the trail makes a very long and steep descent to Sixth Creek before climbing again through Montacute Conservation Park and Mt Crawford Forest Reserve.
A pleasant walk past the pretty private gardens along Holland Creek Road completes the section.
The section between the Montacute Conservation park and Snake Gully Road (Cudlee Creek) was devastated in the Dec. 2019 Cudlee Creek bushfire. Fortunately the section was reopened to walkers in April 2021.
Forestry SA advised that as of 17th May 2021, Grandpas Camp has been fully assessed and it is considered safe for use. Please be aware that some residual burning will be taking place in the nearby plantation for the next few weeks, so it could be a little smokey. The tank at that location is contaminated with ash and not fit for drinking.
