Mt Compass to Kyeema
The pretty dairy pastures of Mt Compass and Nangkita provide the backdrop for the first section of this walk. Back roads then lead walkers through Finniss Conservation Park and into Mt Magnificent Conservation Park, where a short hike off the main trail rewards walkers with spectacular views from Mt. Magnificent over the southern Fleurieu Peninsula. A combination of native bushland then back-road walking completes the day.
