What we'll do

Are you new to hiking? Recovering from an injury? Spent Winter at home watching Netflix & looking to get back into walking? or just tired of going on walks where everyone races off ahead & you are left behind?

This walk is aimed at beginners/slower walkers.

This trail is an alternative to the popular and steep Waterfall Gully-Mt Lofty trail. The 4.5km trail starts at the Crafers Bus Interchange before heading to Mt Lofty summit. It only rises 140m compared with 400m for the popular Waterfall Gully track.

So that we stay together as a group & walk at a pace that everyone can manage, there will be a designated front marker, & no-one is to walk in front of the front marker.

DISTANCE: 9km

BRING: Headtorch & rain jacket

WEAR: shoes with good grip, some parts of the trail are slippery gravel

DEADLINE FOR CHANGING RSVPS: 2PM TUESDAY
Anyone who cancels after this time will be marked a 'No Show'.
3 x No Shows & you will be deleted from all future walks.

Why do we have this deadline?
Because once last year I drove over an hour to get to a hike, to find that everyone had cancelled between when I left home & when I got the hike -
which was not fun :(

DISCLAIMER: Walking at night is dangerous - visibility is reduced & there is an increased risk of tripping/falling over - the path is rocky, uneven & slippery in places.
