Walking Trail Guide
There are two marked trails through the Waite Reserve.
One starts at the bottom of Wild Dogs Glen and does a loop back to the Easement. The trail starts with a steep climb. Allow 2 hours. View the Loop Walking Trail Guide.
Part of the Yurrebilla Trail also traverses the Waite Conservation Reserve. This crosses our southern boundary from Carrick Hill and continues on a public walking track through Springwood Park to the old Mt Barker Road, below Eagle on the Hill. This trail is a narrow footpad, no steeper than 1:11 grade. Allow 45 minutes.
Both walking tracks afford magnificent views over the Adelaide Plains to the sea.
