Burnside Walks – B – Wheal Watkins Circuit is a 1.5km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Mount Osmond Reserve South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.

Summary

A loop through Wheal Watkins Reserve, a former mining area worked in the 1840s (wheal is cornish for mine). The trail passes through stands of pine and ecualypt forest, and walks along a wide fire track in the top section.

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 end of 9 Wheal Watkins Street, Glen Osmond, a the end of Allandale Avenue, and at places marked with a P on the Burnside Walks Brochure.
