The most challenging trail in the park takes you through Echo Tunnel and to the picturesque rock escarpments of the Upper and Lower Waterfalls.
The falls tend to only flow after heavy rainfall.
Most of the trail is on dedicated walking trail, but a few short sections near the lower end of Queen Jubilee Drive are on fire track, and are shared trails with cyclists.
You can walk your dog in this park providing it remains under your control on a lead.
Take care at both waterfalls, the escarpment lookouts are not fenced and can be slippery near the cliff edge.
The trail starts at the Pines area.
3 hours 6.5km return

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.
