Lovely walk with some steep sections. Fantastic view of the city from the lookout.

Great to see wildlife and city view. Heavily used compacted path.

A good walk for views, koalas, the Giles homestead ruins, and moderate ascending and descending exercise. Koalas are in the gully west of the Giles homestead ruins.

One of my favourite loops out near the barossa. Plenty of kangaroos.

Ran the reverse (Kapunda to Tanunda). Great mix of dirt road, bush trails and farm land. Well signed, great scenery from start to finish!

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!

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.
