Follows the forested banks and lower slopes of Minnow Creek between the adventure playground and Long Gully. The trail follows the Valley Road, meandering above the road. The track along the creek is picturesque and passes the Railway Dam, with ducks and seating.
This hike includes the shorter Heritage Tree Walk.
The trail is suitable for most strollers. Some sections of the trail (on the northern eastern side of the creek) can become waterlogged, slippery or muddy during winter or wet weather.

About the region
Set in beautiful natural bushland, Belair National Park is just 25 minutes from Adelaide city centre. This is South Australia’s oldest national park, and is home to Old Government House – a significant heritage building. Also in the park is State Flora, the oldest plant nursery in South Australia and still going strong today. The park remains one of the few relatively undisturbed areas of native vegetation in the Adelaide Hills region, making it an important refuge for native plants and animals.
