Wheal Watkins Circuit – Circuit B, Burnside Walks

About the Walking Trail

A loop through Wheal Watkins Reserve, a former mining area worked in the 1840s (wheal is cornish for mine). The trail passes through stands of pine and ecualypt forest, and walks along a wide fire track in the top section.

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.
