A 10km hike circuit along the Heysen Trail, through Mylor Conservation Park and Aldgate Valley.
Walk the Aldgate Valley Nature Walk between Mylor and Stirling Cemetery, and return via the Heysen Trail between the cemetery and Mylor.
Aldgate Valley Nature Walk connects a series of nature reserves and some quiet country lane walking. The walk begins at Mylor, walking through the Mylor Parklands, then traversing the Aldgate Valley native bushland, Kyle Road Nature Reserve, Nurrutti Reserve and Aldgate Valley Reserve. The reserves and native bushland are home to Southern Brown Bandicoots, kangaroos, possums, echidnas and koalas.
The Heysen Trail between Stirling Cemetery and Mylor Conservation Park parallels the Aldgate to Mylor Road, although it is a walking path, and not a roadside footpath.
The walk through Mylor Conservation Park is a walk through remnant woodland.

About the region
Much of the region surrounding Mylor Conservation Park has been cleared for residential and agricultural purposes. The park forms part of a mosaic of remnant bushland areas which are linked by vegetation corridors on both public and private land. Numerous bird species inhabit the area and it is worth keeping an eye out for western grey kangaroos and eastern brown snakes. A section of the Heysen Trail runs through the park.
