An enjoyable but challenging hike to Mt Lofty
Tom_S
, Jan 2021
Tour guide Mike was very friendly cooperative and gave good advice at the start of the hike location regarding routes and expected times which turned out to be fairly accurate. The first part of the hike was pleasant in the cool weather visiting the flowing first and second falls and passing through interesting Gully vegatation After this the steep climb commenced and apart from a few slight downhill and flatter stretches continued all the way to the summit. Other points of interest were Wilson's Bog a forest of many trees Mt Lofty Cottage and the city and suburban and ocean views from the summit After spending about 25 minutes at the summit the return journey although not requiring so much energy still required aj lot if care in the steep downhill sections. An early start is certainly a good recommendation as attempting the ascent in warm weather is not a good idea especially for those in the older age groups. My guide generously offered to take me all the way home but I did not accept his offer as I was not as exausted as he thought I was.

Though demanding in places this is a no miss walk. A big variety of bird life and the occasional koala and kangaroo are to be seen. If you're walking both ways then recommend the Chinese Hutt track and Adventure track for the return journey. Transport well organised with pleasant and informative driver.
