Geo-historical trail (4 km): This trail follows the creek, passing a small gorge of geological significance and a stone reserve, which Chinese workers used to build stone bridges and stone wall embankments for the Pichi Richi railway. These are still in an excellent condition. Via the bush camp the trail leads to the Pichi Richi ruins, where the remains of a hotel and brewery can be viewed. The trail then meanders through native forest, past a 140-year old well with wind mill, before it crosses the creek back to Wildu house. The pleasant walk takes approximately 1.5 - 2 hours to complete.
Devil's Peak trail (4 km): Devil's Peak in Nukunu language is 'Ngowinyie'. The 697 meter high bluff is a mildly strenuous climb requiring an average fitness level, but the views are spectacular and well worth the effort. You will be able to see the Spencer Gulf, Port Augusta and beyond, Quorn and even Wilpena Pound on a clear day. The trail passes through native vegetation, including native pine trees and yackas, and beautiful rock formations. There is a visitor's book at the top under the cairn. You may spot euros, grey kangaroos, echidnas, emus, reptiles (including snakes), eagles and other birds. It takes about 2.5 hours return.
Nature trail (1,100 m): The relaxed, short walk that connects the Geo-historical and Devil's Peak trails, takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. You might see kangaroos / euros on the open area after you have passed through the fence and have left the native vegetation behind you, particularly as it starts to cool down or earlier in the morning. From the trough, halfway the walk, you will have a beautiful view of Devil's Peak and as the sun sets, the rocks and sky might change in wonderful colours of orange and red. The native vegetation hosts many birds and is a bird watcher's paradise.
