Eagle View Trail is a 14km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in John Forrest National Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.


The Eagle View Trail is a 14 kilometre circuit that leads you to several of John Forrest National Park’s less explored destinations. The trail sees you traverse a series of gentle hills with fantastic views of the city. This is a walk that you can enjoy no matter what age you are. It’s also more challenging than other trails in the park, but your efforts are well rewarded.

Getting there

Head east along Great Eastern Hwy. Turn north into John Forrest National Park. The trail head sign is just on the other side of the brook about 100 metres from the registration point. Simply head down and over the bridge across Jane Brook directly north of the ranger’s office. Originally the trail was designed to be walked in a clockwise direction, but was found to be equally pleasant if walked anti-clockwise. Choose which direction you will take at the trail head sign.


Bring sufficient water, it can get very hot in summer. Be sensible and allow plenty of time for the hike which, depending on your level of fitness, will take from about four-and-a-half to seven hours. This also depends on your interest in your surroundings as you go along.
