Cobbler Creek Porosa Circuit
Starting from the carpark on The Grove Way, near the Bridge Road intersection, Salisbury East, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Dam, Porosa, and Moto tracks. This walk follows some of the original farm tracks, and a tranquil path through the valley of Cobbler Creek among beautiful river red gums. Discover the ruins of one of the area’s first European farms, formerly belonging to William Pedler, a shoemaker whose trade gave rise to the name Cobbler Creek. The ruins of his farmhouse, Trevalsa, can still be seen on this hike. Teakles House is another stone ruin that you'll encounter along the way. From the hilltops you'll be rewarded with great views of the Adelaide Hills and surrounding plains. The route is a mixture of well-formed dirt roads, and narrower walking trails. There is good signage along the way, and interpretive displays at the ruins detail the area's history. There's a steep climb at the beginning of the Porosa Track, but the rest of the route has a gentle gradient. Dogs on leads are permitted in the park and Cobbler Creek. 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.
