As the walking season has come to a close, the arrival of warmer evenings and daylight saving has heralded the beginning of our Summer Walks. These are generally a 1.5-2 hour evening walk most weeks until March. Some longer walks may be held during the day.
The full programme will soon be listed on our walk calendar but here are the details for the first five walks:
Friday 29th October, 6pm: Semaphore/West Lakes/Tennyson
This is a summer/sunset 10klm loop walk, taking in the views from the lake and hopefully the sunset from the Tennyson trail and viewing platform. Their will be an optional dinner at the Big Shed brewery after the walk.
Wednesday 3rd November 6pm: Springfield-Waite
A suburban hike through leafy (but rather hilly) Springfield, skirting Carrick Hill and Waite Conservation Park with a smidge of the Yurrebilla Trail.
Wednesday 10th November 6pm: Wirraparinga Loop
A walk along the 5km Wirraparinga Loop Trail in Brownhill Recreation Park, with a detour along the Springbank Trail. Optional dinner or a refreshment at nearby Edinburgh Hotel.
Thursday 18th November 8am: Old Noarlunga Loop
A brisk morning wake up walk taking in the lower reaches of the Onkaparinga River and with a serious climb to deliver views across to the coast.
Wednesday 24th November 6.00pm: Torrens Linear Park – Lockleys
This walk winds along the River Torrens linear path. An easy 6 km walk, with no hills. Enjoy the wildlife, reed beds and gum trees abundant with birdlife. There will be a post walk dinner at the nearby Lockleys Hotel.
Pay with either option:
- a Golden Boots pass, which are accepted for Twilight walks
