A very interesting walk going up to very distinctive hills, the walk is relatively easy for those who have been on other ODL walks but there is some steep elevation up both hills.  11-12km in total with the highest peak of 425m.

A little bit of geology for you: Chrome and Parkhouse hills have a very distinctive formation, and are basically Reef Knolls – or in other words, huge mounds of mud held together by Polyzoa and Algae. Geologists say that its topography is pretty much the same as it was all the way back in the Triassic period, when it’s location was likely a few degrees south of the Equator.
