Fantastic 16km return covering the Flinders Peninsula to its point at Bald Head. We set off early to watch sunrise from Isthmus Hill but unfortunately there was too much cloud cover. Track mostly easy going though there was some steeper sandy sections where the track had eroded. There are amazing views the whole hike but we especially liked the views NW over King George’s sound from the granite Tors just over half way to Bald head. Would definitely recommend and do again one day. Bring a rain jacket!

A great walk. Because of time constraints we did only 9 km return, 400 m ascent. Spectacular scenery. Part of the trail has be covered with timber boardwalk as an erosion control measure. Look carefully for the route when on rocky outcrops.
We had intermittent heavy rain showers on our walk. I'd like to do it again in fine weather.

A great walk with amazing views. I would rate the difficulty as moderate with some short tough sections. According to the map onsite it is in fact 16 km round trip. They recommend 6-8 hours but it can be done in a leisurely 4-5 hours.
