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 Flinders Ranges National Park, it is a pleasant stroll across Wilpena Pound to complete the day.
