Mount Magnificent Summit Loop
Starting from Blackfellows Creek Road, Yundi, this walk takes you on a circuit past the summit of Mount Magnificent via the Heysen Trail and Mount Magnificent Road. Entering Mount Magnificent Conservation Park along the Heysen Trail, this hike follows a well-worn grassy trail through the forest up to the summit of Mount Magnificent. Keep a lookout for western grey kangaroos along the way. The summit provides spectacular views over the lush green countryside and surrounding farmland, as far as Lake Alexandrina. It's a short climb to the 380 metre summit, requiring a moderate level of fitness, particularly on the last section that is very steep and involves some scrambling over loose rocks. The trail is well marked, but the section along Mount Magnificent Road has no formal trail. 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.
