We pick you up from your Alice Springs accommodation between 7-7:30am and transfer to Simpsons Gap. From here we walk through pleasant, grassy flats and low, rocky hills bearing the scars of early cattle grazing, evidence of the fragility of this arid environment. Graceful Ghost Gums are also to be seen on this section, coated in a white powder with powerful antiseptic properties.
One of the most peaceful parts of the trail is Spring Gap where we observe a wide variety of plant life and watch for birds at the waterhole. From the waterhole we walk on through ever changing countryside to your idyllic camp at Jay Creek.
