Starting from the roadside car park at Gate 12 on Piggott Range Road, Onkaparinga Hills, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Echidna Hike and Waterfall Spur Tracks. The Echidna Hike takes you on a narrow trail over moderate slopes and through lovely pink gum, grey box and sheoak bushland. Enjoy the winter and spring floral displays, including stunning orchids. You will see the charming stone ruins of an old cottage, have great views of the gorge, and get a good workout. Along the way, a short side track leads to a small waterfall that is incredibly picturesque after heavy rains. The trail is marked with large signs, making it easy to follow. The gradient is gentle, with some slightly rocky sections along the way. 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.
