Today’s walk is the most demanding of the week, as it involves traversing up the edge of the pound wall on a steep trail that winds back on itself again and again. But the payoff is worth it. The views back over the ABC and Heysen Range and over the pound (a huge natural amphitheatre) are unheralded. It’s worth stopping at the top to soak up the ambience. You can trace where you have walked from the trailhead at the top end of the snake-like ranges all the way back to where you stand.
