Mount Lofty via Crafers


This is a great full-tilt climb free from traffic for the majority of the effort. From the old tollgate at the foot of the South Eastern Freeway, you'll climb continuously for 12.4 km before reaching the highest point in the Adelaide region - Mount Lofty Summit - where you can reward yourself with a coffee and a great view of the city. This route includes Blackburn Drive - a quiet backstreet in Crafers - which includes a tricky, short climb to sting the legs with a max gradient of over 16%.
