Starting from the Gate 3 car park at the intersection of Matthews Road and Scott Creek Road, Dorset Vale, this walk takes you on a circuit around Scott Creek Conservation Park via the Stringybark, Mount Bold Ridge and Shingleback tracks. Scott Creek Conservation Park features some of the most diverse native vegetation in the Adelaide Hills, with dense stringybark forests, steep-sloped valleys and seasonal creeks that provide habitat for an abundance of birds and animals, including southern brown bandicoots, western grey kangaroos, koalas and ringtail possums. In spring, plenty of wildflowers can be seen dotted along the trails. This relatively easy and straightforward loop begins by entering the stringybark forest along the Bandicoot Track, then ascends steadily along the Stringybark Track, offering excellent views of the park. The next section is fairly flat and easy-going, following the Mount Bold Ridge Track alongside the road before descending along the Shingleback Track back to the car park. This loop consists of well-signposted fire tracks, with some uneven natural surfaces and short steep hills, suitable for average fitness levels. 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.
