WALK - Saturday 9th April 2022 - Mt Lofty Gardens to Norton Summit - Heysen Trail.

This walk is graded moderate and is for hikers with some experience.

The start of this hike is in the famous Mt Lofty gardens and continues along the Heysen trail for 14 Kms. We will hit the peak of Mt Lofty summit in the early stages of the hike and continue through Cleland Wildlife Park, hopefully we will have the chance to spot a few native animals along the way. Once we are out of the wildlife park we will be headed through Summertown and Ashton, walking near some of Adelaide Hills well known vineyards. Later in the walk we will pass through Horsnell Gully before coming around into Norton summit.

We will talk about the history of Mt Lofty and Hans Heysen along our way and see a wide selection of wildflowers, berries, and other fruit. The end of the hike stops at the Norton Summit Scenic Hotel. The walk offers spectacular views of Adelaide and shows some of the highlights of the Heysen Trail.
