Section Overview

 

The first section of the Larapinta slowly takes you away from Alice Springs. It’s a long and undulating walk providing a nice introduction for what is to come in later sections. The trail crosses open country and small creeks before gradually climbing Euro Ridge for spectacular views over Alice Springs and the MacDonnell Ranges.

The trail descends into Wallaby Gap, a secluded camping spot for those wishing to break the section into two.  From there, it continues to trace the ridgeline and ascend onto Hat Hill Saddle where you can admire the first view of Simpsons Gap.
