Hiking around Adelaide
Experience the best of the Adelaide Hills on the 54-kilometre Yurrebilla Trail, which starts at Belair National Park and goes to Black Hill Conservation Park, taking in Cleland and Morialta conservation parks, great views, wineries and historic townships. You can walk it in three days, staying in B&Bs, or make a series of day walks. Ecotrek runs guided and supported two-night walking tours on the Yurrebilla, staying in quality accommodation and with a focus on local food and wine.
Another recommended hike is the Bridgewater Mill to Mount Lofty Summit section of the Heysen Trail. It is 10 kilometres each way, so makes for a solid day walk. A shorter option is the 3.5-kilometre-return walk to the summit from Waterfall Gully.
Around 40 kilometres north-east of Adelaide, the steep 2.2-kilometre-return Devils Nose walk in Para Wirra Recreation Park has great views.
