Starting from the Cleland Conservation Park car park just off Mount Lofty Summit Road, Cleland, this circuit walk takes you past Sugarloaf Hill via the Long Ridge, Chambers Gully and Bartrill Spur tracks. The fauna within the park includes a variety of birdlife, as well as echidnas, southern brown bandicoots, kangaroos and koalas. This hike starts along a gravel road leading to the Long Ridge Lookout on top of Sugarloaf Hill. From the lookout, there are wonderful views over Adelaide to the coast and a couple of benches where you can rest and enjoy the view. The hike then returns down Sugarloaf Hill and enters the Chambers Gully Track, a narrow dirt track that winds its way through the bushes along the foot of the hill. Chambers Gully joins Bartrill Spur, following the creek through a lush green gully to complete the circuit. There are some gentle inclines and uneven surfaces along this hike. Some sections can get muddy and slippery after rain. The tracks are well-formed and aren't overly technical, suited for most ages and 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.
