Waking up at the Rocky Paddock campsite on Mount Crawford Camp was fantastic but boy it was cold. The camp fire we had was amazing, it was probably burning until about 4.00am this morning and was so big it could have been seen by an overflying Satellite, but it needed to be as last night was brass monkey weather. Did I hear you say how cold? I'll tell you how cold, when we got in to bed, with hot water bottles deployed, we shut the roof down on Gypsy, so it made our sleeping quarters even smaller and thus warmer, with an extra Blanket x2 on top of the Doona (Quilt) and our Faux Bear Rug we hunkered down and snuggled in to each other to stay warm. I only had a bottle of beer last ... read more

Back on the trail again (27/12) this time I am walking with my mates Tim and Steve, I picked Tim up just after 6.30 am before heading to Steve's place we took two cars leaving mine just of Dashwood Gully Rd and Steve's at Mylor right in front of the deli. We left my car at 7.45 am beginning the walk by following some back roads past a few farms before arriving on the edge of the Kuitpo Forest about an hour later. A nice cool and overcast morning boded well for a good walking experience shame about the swarms of flies though. On entering the forest my first thought was that this is nothing like the Crawford Forest, they didnt appear to be growing pines here, the vegetation looked much more native and the scenery ... read more

Introduction This was a shortish walk in the Adelaide Hills called Jupiter Creek. The loop trail takes in a piece of the Heysen trail. The walk is 5 minutes away from Hahndorf - a German 'touristy' town where you can see all manner of quirky germanic things. How to get there From the city, head up Glen Osmond road to the freeway. Continue on the freeway until the exit leading to Hahndorf. From the main street of Harndorf look out for the large brown signs leading to Jupiter Creek Mine. There are several turns and about 5 kms before you arrive at the car park for the walk. What happened.. We were rained on. It doesn't happened very often in South Australia, but it happened today. A sporadic shower dumped on us big time. We had ... read more

Introduction This was another short summer walk, which made the Hikers happy as we were able to get out, find some serenity as well as able to tick off a new portion of the Heysen trail. Mylor always brings back memories of school camps - so it was nice to go back as a grown-up and have a look at this area again. The Parks Web has some information about the park How to get there ... From the city take Glen Osmond Road to the freeway and take the Stirling/Aldgate exit and follow this road to Mylor. As you approach the town you will see a road to your left that is signposted to the park. There is a small car park adjacent to the entrance. What happened ... This walk only took only an ... read more
