About the Walking Trail
The Hummocks Trail in Bute, sometimes known as the Hummocks Walking and Cycling Trail, is a shared use trail for walkers, cyclists and horse riders that follows the former Bute to Snowtown railway line from Bute towards the small town/locality of Barunga Gap.
The trail is 7.9km one-way, and 15.8km return. You can start the trail from Gunner Bills Road on the western side of Bute.
According to Geocache user Treasure King 2, “Each section (approx 500m) is maintained by a family, group or individual and each of these sections has a name stake at the start of these sections. If there is a vehicle on the track it should only be from one of these people. There are at different locations some wonderful native orchids and lillies or local birdlife, marsupials, reptiles and snakes.”
As at mid-2019, the trail currently ends at the eastern boundary of the District Council of Barunga West.
