Hahndorf to Bridgewater Circuit
5 h to 8 h 30 min
2 h 15 min to 4 h
Starting from the Pioneer Memorial Gardens on Mount Barker Road, Hahndorf, this walk takes you on an 18km circuit past Bridgewater. The walk mainly follows country roads, laneways and bush tracks through a delightful section of the Adelaide Hills with historic homes, deciduous trees and native bushland. Along the way, you'll go past the great artist Sir Hans Heysen's home, The Cedars. Many of his original works of art can be seen on display in the house and the nearby studio. Some sections of the trail are slightly technical, and there are a couple of river crossings along the way which may be slippery after recent rainfall. This is a long walk, best suited for reasonably fit and experienced walkers. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
