Starting from the end of Eagle Court, Desert Springs, this walk takes you on a circuit in the dry land of Mount Johns district via the Sunset Hill and 12 Hour tracks, crossing a small stream (usually dry) along the way. Feel the sense of remoteness in the first half off the track as you take in the views of East Macdonnell Ranges to your right. You’ll get great views of Alice Springs on the way back, time your hike to watch the sun set behind the town. This can be a great regular track for mountain biking and running for people living nearby as it features wide even trails. The track is pretty exposed, so wear a hat and apply sunscreen to have a better experience. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
