Hale Conservation Park, near Williamstown, is a peaceful place, with natural bush, old mica diggings and some fabulous views over Adelaide. It can be tricky to find, the trailhead is on Warren Road, also known as the Williamstown to Birdwood Road. Around 2 km after leaving Williamstown, you will see a brown sign announcing Hale Conservation Park. Keep a sharp eye out to your right, the narrow track leading to the trailhead and a small car park is easy to miss.

The track is well defined and has yellow markers every 200 metres. The loop is about 4 kilometres and is fairly easy. The old Mica digging are interesting, these are the largest deposits in Australia. There is a track guide available for loan at the trailhead.

For hikers prepared to drive a fair distance, this is a nice alternative to the walks around Mount Lofty which are becoming increasingly popular and congested. It is also at the gateway to the Barossa Valley.

After visiting the Whispering Wall, and in need of some Australian bush to walk in, I recommend the Hale Conservation Park circular walk. There are laminated guide sheets available at the start (don't forget to put them back for the next hikers). You'll come across some interesting geology and native flora. Easy to miss the entrance, we had to double-back, but worth it.

Have been to Hale Conservation many times. Each time we are surprised by something beautiful. We have enjoy the many views, the native plants and the birds. Several time we have been delighted to see Echindnas. It is a peace walk with some rocks, hills and valleys,the waterfalls is flowing most of the year and the variety of native plants make this place a continual attraction.

This has some great hiking trails and the views are just stunning. There is much to photograph with native butterflies and flowers in abundance. Just wonderful.

I have traveled here, with my 11 and 9 year old, on a number of occasions, to walk and enjoy the bush land. Beware, the entry point is very easily missed off Warren Road, but it is only a few kilometers from Williamstown. The loop walk is really good, and suits a moderate capability. It will be even better when we return for the spring wildflowers. Apparently there are mouse spiders here, but I am yet to see them, not sure if I want to!! The paths are quite narrow, but this also means the habitat is less disturbed. Pack a lunch and hike away!

Within the Mount Crawford forestry area, Hale park and Warren Conservation park are wonderful walks and viewing areas
The paths are quite easy to walk on, no real steep climbs, full of wonderful views of adelaide farms and bushland and pine trees
Highly recommend summit views, take your time, about 5 hrs round trip, enjoy the land

Our tour guide was fantastic, the place is big enough but not so big that you miss half of it. I would highly recommend popping in to check it out :)
