The Heysen Trail east of the Deep Creek Waterfall has been re-routed to avoid an eroded, steep section of the trail. Hiking east, the 2.1km re-route begins immediately south of the waterfall. Where the trail used to turn east and head up a steep hill, the trail now continues along the creek, contouring around the hill to rejoin the main trail approximately 1km to the east.

The Heysen Trail has been re-routed in the descent to Boat Harbor Beach. 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. The track was realigned to follow the land contours, rather than going up and down hills.

The re-route is anticipated to be in place for six weeks, however even after that time you should obey signs on the trail.

34. Re-route of the Heysen Trail affecting Map 4.5, July 2009

From July 2009 to early 2010 there will be major roadworks associated with the upgrading of the Sturt Highway near Greenock. A new bridge will be constructed along Roennfeldt Road over Greenock Creek. An additional carriageway will be built alongside the existing Sturt Highway which means Roennfeldt Road will be moved south of its current position. Another bridge for the highway will be constructed over Seppeltsfield Road.

Walkers are advised to use caution when walking along the road when machinery is operating. Take care when passing through the area and be sure plant and machinery operators or other workers are aware of your presence. Once the roadworks are complete the Heysen Trail will be rerouted along the Greenock Creek under the new Sturt Highway bridge, then along the northern side of the highway into Greenock.

The 2km re-route is shorter than the former trail section that followed dirt roads. The re-route is on private land and follows a rough but clearly defined vehicular track high on the western slope of the Tothill Ranges. It provides magnificent views over Apoinga Lagoon, the Tothill Ranges and the Waterloo Wind Farm. Travelling north, it begins at the intersection of the Tothill Belt Road and Black Springs Road and rejoins the Heysen Trail where the former trail turned north at the junction with a minor north-south stream. The re-route is marked.
