View pdf map showing re-route

The Heysen Trail has been re-routed to take the trail into central Kapunda, to the newly constructed Kapunda Town Square (corner Main St and Crase St), and to be closer to bakeries, coffee shops, the camping ground and caravan park.

In July 2020 the route has been tweaked: heading north, the main trail continues along Cameron St, Branson Crescent and Crase St. An short alternative option is from Cameron St, along Mine St, then Whittaker St turning on to Crase St.

A temporary re-route has been marked on the Heysen Trail just south of Hamilton. The affected section of the trail is shown  on Heysen Trail Mapsheet 3B..

The re-route has been established to address landholder concerns about walker access to farming property.

For walkers northbound, after exiting a property at grid reference 046 059, the trail now turns left onto Allen Creek Road and continues to the junction with Marrabel Road.

Again the trail turns left and follows Marrabel Road for approx 1.5 kilometres. Walkers are advised to walk on the gravel verge and take extreme care on this section of road.

The trail then turns left and follows Taylors Run Rd before turning right (northwards) onto Hydedale Rd.  After 2 kms the re-route rejoins the original trail on Cornvale Road at grid reference 033 100.

View pdf map showing re-route

A  temporary re-route has been marked north of Huppatz Hut to avoid construction works associated with the Goyder Wind Farm.

The section of the trail affected by the re-route is shown on Heysen Trail Mapsheet 3D.

The existing trail heads east from Huppatz Hut before the re-route diverts walkers from the trail  at  grid reference  089 509.

The re-route heads due north contouring up the ridge, before a switchback at grid reference 089 514 that brings you to the summit.

The new route crosses the construction road and then heads east adjoining the old trail over a new stile at  grid reference 092 514.

While classified as a temporary re-route, we expect that it may be in place for 18-24 months.
