This is an easy and pretty walk with gentle undulations, along creeklines and through native pine woodlands, in the shadow of Elder Range and Mt Aleck.

Due to land management issues access to and from Red Range campsite can only be undertaken along the Heysen Trail. This creates a long section for day walkers. The last southern public access point is Mt Little Station/Mayo Gorge, and the next public access point to the north is where the Heysen Trail crosses Moralana Scenic Drive – a distance of 15.4km from Mayo Gorge to Red Range Campsite + 15km from Red Range Campsite to Moralana Drive (a total of 30.5km).
