About the Walking Trail
Enjoy vistas at the new lookout over the dam wall and Adelaide hills to Mt Lofty Summit on this short 1km wheelchair friendly trail.
The trails in Mt Bold Reservoir were opened in December 2021.
The Lookout Trail is the shortest and easiest of the three trails at Mt Bold Reservoir.
Start from the carpark where toilets are available (the trailhead on Razorback Road, Kangarilla). The trail is a gentle grade hard surface trail suitable for wheelchairs and prams and leads to a lookout platform. There are solid hand rails and a seat at the lookout.
