As of December 2021 a section of the Mount Bold Reservoir has been opened up to the public. A 450 hectare area is now accessible, with more than 13km of walking trails, new carpark, toilets, and picnic facilities, and a new lookout platform.
There are three new walking trails along the southern side of the reservoir. A 1.3km Grade 2 Lookout Trail, and two Grade 5 trails at 5.1km (loop) and 9.4km (one way). See the full details including map on the Reservoirs SA website.
An iNaturalist Collection Project has been established to collect observations from across the Mount Bold Reservoir, even though much of the area is still restricted. This project has been added to the ‘Protected Parks of South Australia’ Umbrella project.
