On the track in Cudlee Creek

In this area, there have been developed numerous Cross Country Mountain Bike Trails so care needs to be taken on shared tracks with cyclists. Part of the walk is through Montacute Conservation Park which is a very hilly place.

Cuddle Creek

Walkers should be prepared for up and down hills and if wet weather is forecast, slippery conditions as well.

The walk incorporates a steep climb to Mount Misery with wonderful views over the Kangaroo Creek Reservoir and Adelaide plains.

This is a demanding walk. Difficulty is hard but the scenery is spectacular and you will expect to see lots of wild life.
