Wallawa Hike, Kaiserstuhl Conversation Park
The Kaiser Stuhl is the highest point of the Barossa Ranges, and translates from German as “The King’s Seat.” At the base of the Kaiserstuhl sits the little village of Krondorf, whose name is turn translates as “The Village of the Crown.” Beautiful.
The information on this page is drawn from the Walking SA website:
The Wallowa Hike follows walking trails from Gate 1, off Tanunda Creek Road, to the Heysen Trail. Following the Heysen Trail, there is a lookout sidetrip at Gate PV1 which offers views to Pewsey Vale and Kaiserstuhl.
Throughout the park are many interesting rock formations, including Horses Head Rock.
The walking trail on the lookout side can be harder to identify since the commercial forest was felled, but the trip is short and rewarding. The map shows the walking trail, which is signposted and leads to the lookout in native scrub.
The hike is an out-and-back hike from Gate 1, to Gate PV2, Gate PV1 and out to Gate 2, before returning along the same route. This is the hike rated as Moderate.
The hike distance is for the return hike from gate 2 is 10.5km, including 900m return from lookout.
