Burnside Walks – A – Toll Gate Circuit is a 1.9km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Mount Osmond Reserve South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

A short loop past the Glen Osmond mine chimney, through Danthonia Reserve, looping back through a forested valley and along Gill Terrace. The hike begins in the carpark adjacent the former mine’s adit (tunnel). The stone chimney further up the hill in Danthonia Reserve is the flue for a smelter that was located north of the adit.

Be careful of cars when walking along Gill Terrace, as there is no footpath for most of the road.

This walking trail is part of the Burnside Walks network, a series of trails around the hills on the edge of the City of Burnside, and in Mount Osmond Reserve. The trails are all well marked, with regular signs and numbered checkpoints that correspond to the excellent walking map.

Parking is available at the carpark on the corner of Gill Terrace and the South Eastern Freeway (near the Old Tollgate), and at places marked with a P on the Burnside Walks Brochure.

This hike can be accessed by Adelaide Metro bus, via Bus Stop 14 Mt Barker Road, Glen Osmond.
