Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty Summit is an 5km, grade 4 return hike located in Waterfall Gully South Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.
This popular walk is short and sweet. With a cafe at each end, a well made path and regular seating, this walk is popular for a reason.
On almost any morning of the year the trail attracts a range of people: some casually walking, others using it as a training walk, some runners, and others with heavy-simulated packs training for distant hiking locations like Nepal. As the walk involves some steep sections, the time taken to walk the trail can vary significantly.
On a busy weekend, car parking at Waterfall Gully can be limited.
Starting hiking from Mt Lofty instead of Waterfall Gully can be a good way to use the downhill as a warm up, to super charge your up-hill efforts.
