Walking is a great way to improve fitness and maintain health and wellbeing. But did you know the benefits are significantly increased when you hit the uphill tracks?
Long-lived residents of property in Burnside are most likely already aware of the great walking trails in the area, but for those new to the suburb, here is a brief run down on the trails in the region.
The beautiful reserves of Mount Osmond are within walking distance for many residents of Beaumont, Glen Osmond and Burnside.
Those further out can take a quick drive or bus trip to the walkable tracks over the slopes of the mountain reserves.
As you conquer the walkable tracks along the mountain, you’ll be offered spectacular views over Adelaide and have the chance to appreciate relics from Australia’s early mining history.
Chambers Gully Reserve is another scenic walking track. Hit the trail clockwise along the Chambers Gully Track for a gradual climb uphill through beautiful bush scenery or challenge yourself with the anti-clockwise slog up the Winter Track.
Also nearby is Waterfall Gully, where walkers can enjoy trails and paths that have been rebuilt and resurfaced for a safer journey to Adelaide’s iconic First Falls.
