About the Walking Trail
At 495 metres above sea level Carappee Hill is the highest point on the Eyre Peninsula. Carappee Hill means ‘place of water’ – as a high exposed granite rock containing numerous soaks, frequented by kangaroos and other wildlife. Take an energetic climb along the Carappee Hill Hiking Trail to the top following the painted white arrows the trail markers – in 2019 the District Council of Cleve remarked the trail with trail markers.
At the summit keep an eye out for a box, be sure to make your mark in the visitors book.
The Carappee Hill Hiking Trail is located in the Carappee Hill Conservation Park. Access to the trail is on Carappee Hill Road. The parking area is on the roadside (view location map) and can be quite hard to see, with minimal signage available.
The trail itself is marked with white markers on the rocks so please hike with care at all times. The gradient is very steep, with long inclines and declines. The hike is approximately 4km return with a steep incline. Do not hike in wet weather, the rock can be very slippery when wet.
