Toll Gate Circuit – Circuit A, Burnside Walks

About the Walking Trail

A short loop past the Glen Osmond mine chimney, through Danthonia Reserve, looping back through a forested valley and along Gill Terrace. The hike begins in the carpark adjacent the former mine’s adit (tunnel). The stone chimney further up the hill in Danthonia Reserve is the flue for a smelter that was located north of the adit.

Be careful of cars when walking along Gill Terrace, as there is no footpath for most of the road.

This walking trail is part of the Burnside Walks network, a series of trails around the hills on the edge of the City of Burnside, and in Mount Osmond Reserve. The trails are all well marked, with regular signs and numbered checkpoints that correspond to the excellent walking map.
