Section 57: Moralana Scenic Drive to Wilpena

August 2020, section numbers altered:

  1. Sections previously numbered 51 to 55 have been renumbered to accomodate what was previously Section 50, from Eyre Depot to Buckaringa, to be split into two smaller more manageable sections: Section 50 Eyre Depot to Warren Gorge, and Section 51 Warren Gorge to Buckaringa. So what was Section 51 is now Section 52, and what was 52 now 53, and what was 53 now 54, and what was 54 now 55.
  2. Sections previously numbered 55 and 56 have been combined into Section 56, from Mt Little Station to Moralana Scenic Drive.

This is one of the very special walks of the Trail, starting with a pretty creek walk through Black Gap, before climbing the Pound Range to Bridle Gap, where a look back provides spectacular views of Elder Range. Entering Ikara - Flinders Ranges National Park, it is a pleasant stroll across Wilpena Pound to complete the day.
