There is temporary re-route of the Heysen Trail in the vicinity of the Jupiter Creek Diggings site.
The Diggings site has been temporarily closed due to storm damage which has raised safety concerns about some of the mine shafts. Repair work is being undertaken to restore the area.
As a result there is a 3.5 kilometre re-route between Rowe Road on the northern side of the diggings and Kuipto Forest.
Trail closure signs have been erected at both ends of the trail. Please follow the Heysen Trail markers along the re-route.
The Diggings are located west of Echunga in the Adelaide Hills. The site can be found on Map 3.1 of the Heysen Trail Southern Guide and also on the Heysen Trail Sheet Map 2A.
