Walking Trails

At Scott Creek Conservation Park, you can enjoy a healthy walk in nature, discover hilltop views and look out for the wildlife.

The Park’s extensive walking trails once provided access to many small landholdings. The ridge tracks give superb views of steep heavily wooded slopes and gullies and the landscape beyond. The many seasonal creeks give rise to an enormous variety of native fauna and flora species.

The tracks are clearly signposted and will take you through open woodland and grassland, along creeklines, and passed historic ruins including the Almanda Mine site. Please be aware of the seasonal closure around Greenhood Track (Gate 18 and Gate 21) due to Phytophthora. More information on Phytophthora is at the bottom of this page.

Because of the high conservation value of Scott Creek Conservation Park,
dogs, bicycles, horses and camping are not permitted in the Park.

Seasonal Closure of Greenhood Track!

Phytophthora is present in the area around Greenhood Track (Gate 18 and Gate 21) and will therefore remain closed from 1 April to 31 October to reduce its spread!

Phytophthora, oth­er­wise known as root-rot fun­gus, is killing our native plants and threat­ens the sur­vival of ani­mals depend­ing on plants for food and shelter. Walkers can spread Phytophthora over large distances by transferring infected soil into new areas.

Please help stop the spread by using hygiene sta­tions, stay­ing on tracks and trails and by com­ply­ing with all Phytophthora man­age­ment signs.

For more information on Phytophthora and how to stop the spread, download the brochure from the NPWS SA website.
