About the Walking Trail
The walking trail to Black Cliff in Hallett Cove Conservation Park was upgraded in August 2017 to enable access for prams and assisted wheelchairs.
The entire length of the 550m trail, starting at the Park’s southern entrance and ending at Black Cliff, is being paved to create a smooth, non-slip surface.
The trail connects with the existing boardwalk, providing a 925m trail to the lookout near Waterfall Creek, or a 1.8km return walk.
Other improvements include removal of the entry chicane and a reduction in the steepness of the path at the park entrance, allowing easier access for prams and wheelchairs.
The path has also been widened to allow visitors to stop and read park interpretive signs without blocking others.
This walk is wheelchair accessible with assistance as the climb up the hill to the lookout is quite steep, so most people that use wheelchairs may not be able to get up there unassisted.
The current trail was featured in a recent PushAdventures.com.au blog post, so the trail upgrade will be welcomed by all.
The $140,000 improvements at Hallett Cove are part of the State Government’s commitment of $10.4 million to upgrade metropolitan national parks and reserves for the growing number of local residents who use outdoor recreational spaces and to make our parks and reserves more accessible and inclusive.
Although this walk is marked as being Wheelchair Accessible, some people may require assistance.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service SA Accessibility webpage has useful information about accessibility within national parks, including specific details about accessible parks, trails, picnic grounds, carparking and toilets.
