1. Mapsheet 5A: Bundaleer Reservoir, August 2023, updated February 2024

View pdf map showing re-route

A new reroute has been established near the Bundaleer Reservoir. The reroute crosses into SA Water land on the southern side of the channel opposite the crossing of the Spalding-Gulnare Rd where the Heysen Trail follows the channel from Spalding.

Walking from south to north, the re-route proceeds directly across the Gulnare-Spalding Rd from the channel (Grid Ref 716 938) and crosses a stile next to the SA Water entrance gate. The trail follows a track for 100 m to a ford then directly up the hill to a stile that crosses into SA Water land.

Once in the SA Water land the trail crosses to the Ring Rd around the reservoir and follows this road across the dam wall and around to the Reservoir Car Park/Toilet at the North-Western corner of the reservoir (Grid Ref 710 958).

The trail leaves the car park on the western side and after 50 m crosses a stile into private property, (the trail follows the northern channel but NOT in the fenced off channel land). The trail then follows the fence within the private property until it reaches the Aquaduct where it crosses a stile and meets up with the existing trail (at Grid Ref 706 969) and follows the existing trail north.

New End to End walk start point. The Reservoir car park is now the end point for End to End Walk 33 and the start point for Walk 34. The E2E point has been moved from the Chlorinator, as the trail no longer passes that feature.

View pdf map showing re-route

This short re-route that leads to the main street of Crystal Brook affords walkers the benefit of easy access to a number of businesses and amenities.

On entering Crystal Brook from the south, the Trail now heads along Darbon Terrace, before crossing under  the railway line and entering Bowman Street, the main street of Crystal Brook.

It takes the walker past various shops, the bakery and a toilet, before circuiting around Adelaide Square and joining  Eyre Road, before heading into the caravan park and rejoining the old route, after crossing the Crystal Brook via a short floodway.

3. Mapsheet 5B: Re-route near Bowman Park – Huddleston, May 2021

View pdf map showing re-route

Due to the closure of the Heysen Trail as it heads north from Crystal Brook between Bowman Park and the Wilkins Highway (Hughes Gap) there is a re-route in place. The re-route was marked in May 2021.

For walkers following the south to north direction, the re-route commences at Bowman Park. Instead of heading north along the Crystal Brook the trail now heads south on Bowman Park Road.  The trail then heads west before turning north to eventually follow Heads Road and the the Pipeline Track. At the end of that track the trail returns to Heads Rd before meeting the old route at the Wilkins Highway.

The re-route of the trail in this area was due to damage caused to fences by people (other than walkers) mis-using the trail. An unfortunate reminder to all trail users to respect the trail and the private property it often traverses.
