Upgrade of 4km of trail through Deep Creek

Trail Upgrade Opens
By Lisa Bachmayer

Walkers will this weekend be able to plant their footprints on the upgraded four-kilometre stretch of the Heysen Trail in Deep Creek Conservation Park.

Open this Saturday, the $90,000 upgrade aims to make the badly eroded section of the trail more environmentally sustainable and provide a more spectacular trek for walkers.

The trail previously hugged the coastline and led its walkers up steep hills, causing significant erosion.

Opening of the Walk Season 6th April 2008

Click on image to view larger imageWhat a magnificent day for walking. The Friends’ had 2 groups walking and arrived at Stirling, outside the new library, in time for the 1pm opening. Other groups also walked in and many walkers and the public were present, so there was a good crowd for the official part of the day. Many groups had informative displays, including The Friends Of The Heysen Trail. Thanks to Jack Marcelis and David Rattray for dedicating their time to manning our stall. Many of our Friends’ visited during the day and there was a lot of “catching up” amongst walkers. The sun shone on those walking after lunch, reminding us that while daylight saving may have finished, we are not far from the summer heat.
At last – we can now get on with our 2008 Walk Program.
