My walking partner and I chose to start where we left off. We parked the car on Nurragi Road, near the picnic spot on the Conservation Reserve. We could have started at the other end and walked from Tucker Road, Sandergrove, which is a 10km drive from Strathalbyn. Either direction is fine for a lovely, 12km-ish, return trip walk.
In addition to benches and tables, the picnic spot provides lots of information including maps of the trail, details on flora, fauna and history as well as brochures for walkers.
I feel mournful at the loss of so many train services in our country. I would far prefer a relaxing train trip through beautiful scenery than a car trip on a busy, concrete motorway. Trains are far kinder to our planet than all those single-occupied cars on the road.
