Weekend Walks for Women: The Yurrebilla Trail Stage 3 Hike July 14th

July 14 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm

Secure your spot HERE.

Members get this walk at half price!

Join us for the Yurrebilla Trail this year as we tackle this stunning trail (located just 12km from Adelaide city) in 3 stages. The third stage is approx 18-20km from Norton Summit to Athelstone via the mighty Black Hill and will take approx 7 hours to complete.

For this walk you will need good physical fitness behind you – the track is rated Moderate to Hard – it is a hilly walk with plenty of challenges but amazing scenery to make it worth the effort 😉

You must have a good level of fitness for this walk!

We will remind you 2 days before the walk of the latest weather forecast – ensure you have adequate sun protection and wet weather gear – we cannot refund you if you do not have the gear needed. If you arrive ill-prepared our leaders can ask you not to walk for safety reasons.

Please bring:

  • Worn in comfortable walking shoes or boots
  • Day backpack (35 litre)
  • Filled water bottles (2+ litres)
  • Any personal medications/blister kit
  • Wet weather gear/sun protection (as per the forecast – we will remind you 48 hours before of the expected weather)
  • walking poles (highly recommended)
  • snacks (fruit, museli bars, trail mix, lollies)

We will provide refreshments (tea/coffee/hot choc) and a morning tea stop approx half way – please remember to advise us of any allergies before the walk so we can cater as best we can. We offer full cream milk or skim lactose free milk and gluten free snack options/light lunch options. Feel free to a few snacks to get you through and please eat breakfast before you walk 🙂

Transport from Athelstone to Norton Summit is included. The bus departs at 8am from the Ambers Gully Car Park on Gorge Road (a map will be emailed and texted to participants 48 hours prior to the walk). There are toilets in the park across the road from the Amber Gully car park and also at Norton Summit.

Look for the Big Heart Adventures car/flag when you park.

If the weather forecast is for extreme weather for the Adelaide Hills, this walk will be cancelled the day before.

Your Leaders for this walk are Lisa Murphy and Linda Hurcombe. Our leaders carry group first aid kits, emergency communication devices and are experienced and qualified bushwalking leaders.
