Some places we've been and some places we're going.

Shepherds Hill Recreation Park covers 77 hectares or nearly 200 acres. William John Shepherd originally farmed the land from 1853 to 1864 and there are still some signs of early settlement. This is the entrance from Ellis Avenue but there is another entrance with a Carpark off Ayliffe’s Road.

As usual you can click on any image to see it full sized.

There are plenty of different tracks to choose from, some are designed for Mountain Bikers others are shared walking/riding tracks as well as larger Fire Tracks.

Grey Box Trees are native to the area but there are a variety of trees and plants.

Apart from Mountain Bikers, bird watchers and walkers the park also provides a venue for the Pony Club and The Eden Field Archers.

 

If you’re in an environment like this you can’t ignore the wildlife.

 

When you’ve made your way to the top of the hill you get a 360 deg view.

View from Maggie’s seat, Adelaide CBD is in the background about 10 kms away
