Myponga to Mt Compass
After a short road walk, the trail enters the small but picturesque Yulte Conservation Park. After emerging from the bushland, the trail crosses open farmland continuing along Lawless Rd (and the Myponga Pistol Club firing range), and gradually climbing to Mt Cone, which offers distant views over Victor Harbor to the South.
