About the Trek

BAROSSA VALLEY
14 & 15 MAY 2021

The JLF Trek is an endurance event designed to challenge you physically and mentally. A medium to high level of fitness is required but with the right preparation and attitude you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve. Whether you complete the full two-day event or a shorter section, this weekend will leave you inspired and ready to take on the world.

The JLF Trek will take place in iconic Barossa Valley on the Heysen Trail trekking through Kapunda, Pewsey Valley and Mount Crawford.

The Friends of the Heysen Trail voluntarily maintain the walking trail and mark it with distinctive red arrow markers to help hikers stay on the track. These can sometimes be difficult to follow if you are not paying attention, so be prepared for some orienteering.

Registrations close on Friday 30 April 2021 unless sold out prior and places are strictly limited. Don't miss out on this incredible challenge.
