Devil’s Peak Walking Trail is a 2.4km, grade 3 Return hike located in Flinders Chase National Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

The Devil’s Peak trail is a moderately difficult bushwalk becoming increasingly strenuous towards the summit, where some scrambling over rocks is required. Allow 1.5 to 3 hours to complete this walk.

From the summit you will be rewarded with extensive panoramic views of Quorn, the Southern Flinders Ranges, the Horseshoe Range, Pichi Richi Pass, Port August, Upper Spencer Gulf and beyond to Wilpena Pound.

Devil’s Peak is 697m high, and along this walk you may observe many good examples of “faulting”, discover fossil impressions of ancient lifeforms, and see a variety of native fauna and flora.

The walk is closed during the summer Fire Danger Season (generally from 1st November to 15 April).

Access the trail from Richmans Valley Road, out of Quorn.
