3.1km, 2 hours

Follow the walking trail through the forest. The trail is marked and easily followed. 650 metres of this trail is along the quiet dirt Evans Drive (both the entrance and exit are clearly marked, don’t be tempted by the numerous dead-end indistinct walking trails leaving the road).

  • Start this hike from the carpark at Gate 1 (178 Scott Creek Road)
  • Walk clockwise – walk along Loftia Track (a fire track), past the oval and shelter.
  • The walking trail starts 100 metres after the junction with the fire track called Nioka Track.

The Mark Oliphant Conservation Park is a park with stringybark forest and a number of walking trails. Trails are marked, and firetracks clearly named.

There is no trail information at the carpark and the oval has a modern shelter, but there are no other park facilities.

  • Contact us if you have any feedback or information (including trail notes and photos) to contribute to the ongoing development of Trails SA.
