I like this hike because it gives you a really beautiful view back towards the city. The trail is a loop, and it takes about and hour and a half. The trail is not very well maintained, and you would be going up or down unstable rocks. Do take care!

With many trails and access roads to hike, Black Hills Conservation Park, is underrated. The access trails are steep, but not difficult, want a challenge? Try the nature trails, they are for the fit and unafraid of heights or ledges. Either way, the views are to die for. There are wild flowers, native animals and on the Amber Gully trail... More

This is a review of this walk in the Park, rather than the whole area. I start early morning at the end of Addison Ave. The track up is steep but generally well made with views out across the plains and nearby valleys. I am alone and the bush is still apart from the low hum of insects and the... More

Great for picnics, short walks or a day hike. Plenty of birds and koalas. Take at least a litre of water and where sturdy shoes

I hiked in this park a number of times, there are trails suitable for any level of bush walkers. Ghost tree gully trail is challenging. A big section of 54km Yurebilla trail in in this park. Entry from Gorge road, hike lodge track will guarantee a surprise to you.

I have been to Black Hill a few times, as the walk has a stunning view. There are also historical sites along the way, with gorgeous ruins besides the track. However this walk can be quite challenging, so I would not recommend it to people with knee troubles or really young children.

Who would've thought that we have this beautiful park right here in the suburbs of Adelaide. Completed a 14km hike through the conservation park and reached the Summit!! Placed our rock on the rock pile!!

Black Hill Conservation Park also covers the old Athelstone Wildflower Garden at the top of Addison Ave, in September you can still see native orchids up and around the garden. On the other side of Addison Ave we walked to look at the scrub and even saw a wallaby, so leave the dogs in the car please.

Black Hill is a challenging arena for the hiker and Trail Runner alike. There are various entrances to the park, with paths varying in difficulty. The inclines are relatively steep, however the views from the top are breathtaking.

Black Hill park, situated at the foot of the Adelaide Hills in Athelstone area, is great for fitness walks and Australian bush observation easy walks and very difficult walks can be found within this large area, filled with peaceful surroundings, bird life and the odd rare snake sighting or koala in the gum trees no matter what dirst path you...
