Easy hike through bushland and rocky escarpment. Gorgeous views

Great easy walk, paths are well kept! Has other hiking options, if you enjoy testing yourself head up to the lookout

Had an early start, leaving camp around 3am. Arrived at the summit at around 6am to watch the sunrise. Challenging hike with 10kg packs but well worth the reward!

Nice and easy

A must see if you care about aboriginal history

Kid friendly with aboriginal art as s reward

good views and you can take the pooch

Lovely track

I’ve done this keg of the Heyson trail and I loved it!! Camped at Yanyana Hut the first night after walking from Wilpena and Aroona Ruins the second night. The last day was Aroona Ruins to parachilana gorge and got a ride into Parachilna. A great time!

Nice walk, lots of birds.

Run this regularly with a head torch. The trail is really well maintained and is quite wide as its used for fire vehicle access as well. Recommended for a non technical run with reasonably easy ascents. Total elevation gain is about 230m on an anti clockwise loop according to my watch. Great on week days but gets really busy on weekends.

Love the views on this, the hill will kick your arse

Good walk

What a nice hike, the creek is wonderful, wildlife is rich, the waterfall is quiet. The steep sections require good shoes and to be confident on rocky paths.
$10 fees apply for a day entry permit.

Great fun, especially after a little rain. Usually quiet.

Can extend up to lofty summit if desired.

When I was there the trail was under construction so I missed some of the waterfall action and the detours were in the sun :(

Still a nice trip and the top is cute with a gift shop and cafe.

A great walk to enjoy Australian coastal flora and spot western gray kangaroos. In spring sections of tracks going down the ocean you can see native orchids.

can be a very nice walk in the cooler months especially if there's been rain to get the falls flowing. nothing overly difficult apart from some short steep inclines.

Lots of trails to do depending on whether you want a short stroll or a bit of a hike - but none of them too difficult. My wife and I (pensioners) hiked 12.6 kms - and she did it in her thongs (flip-flops).

Well laid out and interesting. Trail surfaces pretty good and not too "manufactured" looking.

We'll come back.
