Hard track
Starting from the parking area at Measdays Lookout on Mount Barker Road, Crafers West, this walk takes you on a circuit through the southern end of the Cleland Conservation Park. As you descend to the gully, you’ll reach the lovely creek and follow it through its length before crossing it and returning along the other side. This hike involves several creek crossings, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear. The tracks are generally wide and well-formed, with some uneven and rocky sections. 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.
