Today’s hike is full of ascents and descents, the track traverses the ABC Range with incredible 360-degree panoramic views of the mountains and surrounding plains. The track makes its way via the Brachina Formation, one of the oldest rock formations on the planet. This walk includes one of the most intact and rich Ediacaran fossil sites in the world. These 600-million-year-old rock formations are older and are touted as being once taller than the Himalayas. They’ve been worn down over time. The last section of today’s walk from Trezona to Yanyanna is through an open flat valley typical of the Flinders region.
