Pioneer Women's Trail (Men and Women) - Saturday 10th August 2024

Join Big Heart Adventures as we explore the Pioneer Women’s Trail through sections of the Adelaide Hills!
The cost of this walk is $60pp (plus Eventbrite booking fee) which includes bus transport and morning tea.
The Pioneer Women’s Trail follows the journey of early settlers (in particular, women and girls) who regularly carried fruit and other supplies from Hahndorf to the city.
We respectfully acknowledge that our adventure traverses on Kaurna Land traditionally owned by the Kaurna People.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The bus will drop us off at Verdun, where we will then walk approximately 22km back to Beaumont along the Pioneer Women’s Trail. Allow 6 to 7 hours for this walk.
You will enjoy a mix of country roads and bush trails as you walk from Verdun through Bridgewater, parts of Cox Creek, Mt George Conservation Park, Stirling, Crafers, Cleland Conservation Park and finally back to our cars at Beaumont.
The walk is rated as Moderate with some gradual climbs and descents. A few sections may be slippery underfoot. Hiking poles are recommended.
BUS MEET SPOT
Meet at 8.15am for an 8.30am bus departure. The bus departs from Dashwood Road Beaumont. You will receive instructions and a map on how to get to this location 24-48 hours before the event. There is plenty of street parking, but please allow plenty of time to arrive and park. There is a toilet located at the bus meet location.
The bus will then take us to Verdun to begin our walk.
WHO IS THIS EVENT SUITABLE FOR?
This event is for both men and women and is suitable for anyone with a good level of fitness behind them. It is ideal for people who may not be confident with being on trails without a leader or the company of others.
Note that our walks are all about fun, fitness and friendship – they are not a personal training session. If we cannot walk and talk at the same time, we are walking too fast! And we never leave anyone behind.
The minimum age requirement for this walk is 15 years old and must come with a supervising adult - please check with us if unsure.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Due to the variability of the weather, please ensure you have adequate sun protection (hat, sunnies, sunscreen) and wet weather gear – we cannot refund you if you do not have the gear required. If you arrive ill-prepared our leaders can ask you not to walk for safety reasons.
We will check the forecast and remind you all what to expect prior to the walk, but weather can be unpredictable, so it is important to be prepared. We recommend wearing warm layerable clothing as the temperature can change quickly, and the extra layers can also keep you warm during breaks.
Please also bring worn in comfortable walking shoes/hiking boots, day pack (35 litre), filled water bottles/bladder (2+ litres), personal medications/blister kit, walking poles (highly recommended), snacks (fruit, muesli bars, trail mix, lollies), and a light lunch to enjoy enroute.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
We will provide afternoon tea in the second half of the walk with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, fruit and home baked goods on offer. Please remember to advise us of any allergies before the walk so we can cater as best we can.
We offer full cream milk or skim lactose free milk and gluten free and vegan snack options/light lunch options.
LEADERS
Our leaders carry group first aid kits, emergency communication devices and are qualified and experienced bushwalking leaders.
CANCELLATIONS
Refunds are not available if cancelling 7 days or less prior to the walk.
If the weather forecast is for extreme weather or a fire ban is issue for the Adelaide Hills, this walk will be cancelled the day before and participants will be notified. A rare same day cancellation may also occur if weather warnings or fire warnings are issued same day - we will always phone participants to cancel should this occur on the day of the event.
Note: if this walk is cancelled by Big Heart Adventures, we will endeavour to do a catch up walk on Sunday 15th September or Sunday 22nd September 2024. We will email participants if this occurs and your payment can either be transferred to the new date, or we can offer you a full refund.
Note that we require a minimum of 6 walkers for this walk to go ahead. If we do not meet these numbers, a refund will be provided.
If you have any questions, you can call Lisa Murphy on 0418 802 361 or phone the office on 0870065620.
