Hike Summary

This loop hike traverses the Brownhill Creek valley, through and beyond Brownhill Creek Recreation Park, up the Yurrebilla Trail and into Belair National Park. Following the Yurrebilla Trail through Belair National Park, the trail passes Belair Railway Station, with a short section following local roads and walking paths in to Randall Park. With rewarding views over the Adelaide Plains, the Park is a former quarry and largely undeveloped, but traversed by numerous unsignposted walking trails and fire tracks. The City of Mitcham, as of mid 2015, has plans to redevelop the park and upgrade the Park's trail infrastructure. As of mid-2017 some of the works are underway. At the bottom of Randall Park, the route returns to Brownhill Creek through the Mitcham Cemetery.

About the region

Brownhill Creek Recreation Park is a popular and picturesque recreation park in suburban Adelaide where you can enjoy bushwalking, bike riding, horse riding or a picnic. The park's narrow creek flows through a steep sided valley with majestic river red gums, (some more than 300 years old). This area was once a favourite camping, hunting and gathering ground for the Kaurna Aboriginal People. Large river red gums line Brownhill Creek while blue gum woodland climbs the valley slopes. The park also supports a small, threatened, ecosystem of greybox grassy woodland. Today, this 51 hectare park offers an escape from the city and includes a horse trail and fenced horse exercise area.
