About the Trail

The Monkey Rock Trail is located at the Monkey Rock carpark off Lights Road, Ocean Beach in Denmark. From the town centre of Denmark, it is an easy 10-kilometre drive taking up to 15 minutes.

There are two trails that can begin from the Monkey Rock carpark: Monkey Rock Trail, and Shiela Hill Trail (part of the Bibbulmun Track).

Note: following the driveway path will lead to the Monkey Rock Trail.

Beginning as a relatively easy walk through bush and granite, the trail increases in steepness towards the end viewpoint. The viewpoint reveals Denmark's green bushland and blue beaches. 

The trail is described as a steep walk by some, and a light hike by others. 

Single use, linear, walking trail.
