Geological Circuit is a 1.3km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Anstey Hill Recreation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


The Geological Hike is a quiet hike located in the little-visited south west corner of the park. The trail explores the quarries and trails near the geological feature known as ‘The Gun Emplacement’, with interpretive signage along the way detailing local history and the environment. More information about the Gun Emplacement can be found on the Friends of Anstey Hill website.

The hike begins from Gate 9 off Lower North East Road.

As at early March 2017, the trail is not yet marked with arrows, but the trail posts are in place. Walking clockwise, without the arrows choosing which trail to walk can be problematic. We anticipate that arrows would be installed by mid April 2017.

The trail is for hikers only, mountain bikes are not permitted.
