Weekend Walks for Women: Montacute to Cuddle Creek

August 13 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us for a date with the Heysen Trail! We will be doing a 17km section that snakes its way through Montacute Conservation Park and Mt Crawford Forest through to Cudlee Creek. We will finish off with a late lunch at the Cudlee Creek Tavern – we include a hot drink or cool drink for you at the finish line.

This is a challenging section of the Heysen Trail – you will need a good level of fitness and the following items are minimum compulsory gear requirements:

Worn in comfortable walking shoes or boots

Day backpack (35 litre)

Filled water bottles (2 litres)

High energy snacks/light lunch

Any personal medications/blister kit

Walking poles (optional but highly recommended)
