Yurrebilla Trail: Section 5(Morialta to River Torrens)
Starting from the 'Gate 9' carpark at the end of Moores Road, Woodforde, this walk leads to the northern end of Black Hill Conservation Park via the Moores, Fox Hill, Quarry, Black Hill, Banksia and Yurrebilla tracks. The trail meanders through eucalypt woodland teeming with wildlife, including many kangaroos and koalas. Along this hike, walkers are rewarded with excellent views back across the Adelaide Plains to the City of Adelaide, and further down to the Gulf of St Vincent. The hike starts along Moores Track, then continues along Fox Hill Track, passing Fox Dam, exiting Morialta Conservation Park onto Montacute Road. Follow Montacute Road alongside Fifth Creek, entering Black Hill Conservation Park via the Quarry Track, and continue along Black Hill Track. After a small detour to Black Hill Summit, the hike returns to Black Hill Track, continuing along the Yurrebilla Trail as it descends into Ambers Gully. The trail ends at Athelstone, near the River Torrens. There is clear signage throughout this hike, and the route is mostly along well-formed dirt tracks. There are some narrow sections with slightly rough terrain, and there are a few steep hills along the way, including a very steep downhill section at the end of the hike. 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.
