Hard track
Starting from the car park on the Grove Way, Golden Grove, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Moto Loop, Porosa and Super D tracks. The Valley Circuit takes walkers to some of the more remote parts of the park. Along the Porosa Track, walkers can explore the historical Teakle Ruins. These ruins are named after the Teakle family, the last occupiers of the farmhouse on top of Cobbler Hill. From the hilltop near the ruins, there are rewarding views of the Adelaide Hills and surrounding plains. The track is clearly marked, and there are plenty of information boards to learn about the area. There are no facilities within the park, and water runs in the creek for most of the year, except during summer. Your four-legged friends must be kept on a leash. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
