This is a great trail for walkers and riders. It's always in excellent condition and there is plenty to see along the way. The best part in my opinion is the section between Swanview and Parkerville, overlooking Jane Brook and its waterfalls.

Such a beautiful ride! Did the whole loop which took me roughly 3.5hrs by bike with a couple of pit stops for photos and snacks. Started at Swanview and rode in a clockwise direction. Incline is ever so slight, but was knackered by the end so will probably start in Bellevue next time to avoid that last little climb! Took a map with me but the track is easy to follow, with plenty of markers along the way. Plenty of water fountains along the way too which surprised me.

The BIKE: Did this anti-clockwise as hills first. Started at Swan View. Took 2.5 hours and was my first proper MTB trail so if I can do this at that "speed" then anyone can!!! Such an awesome trail. PS. I meant to give the walk a 5* but didn't change the automatic 3*

The Hike: We started at John Forrest with the intention of having a well deserved pint at the Tavern at the end!! (great idea except the park entry fee was $12)They do brekkie apparently. We started at 7.30am clockwise and stopped for coffee at Mount Helena, lunch (20km / half way mark) at Mundaring (and blister fix from chemist as well as Coles, etc. Few places for a bought lunch). Coffee at Glen Forrest (30km) and home run to the tavern. Was the most amazing day. Great scenery. Lovely people to chat to enroute. Lots of bikes come soaring past you so be careful. Not many toilets. Water refills at start but not much else unless through towns. I bought a 1L bottle and was fine. Not much incline or decline. Very easy walk with gravel underfoot. It was the length that is the challenge. An hour's car ride. Longer than a marathon (we clocked 44.3km) and the length of time. We finished at 7.20pm which included stops so 12 hours in total. But the actual walk took 8.5 hours. I would absolutely recommend it but my friend had only walked 15km max so was very tough for him. In fact he lost a toenail! I am a big walker and walk 6-18km regularly so 44km whilst a challenge, was no big deal the next day except for a couple of blisters. I would do this again at the drop of a hat. Absolutely not in summer / heat due to the length you are on the trail. You must start early to be back before dark. We walked a good pace. I think 8-10 hours would be reasonable. I still have yet to meet anyone who has walked this far in one day. It truly is an amazing thing to do. Oh and another tip: Do it with someone who won't whine about length of time and someone who has good conversation!!!!

This trail is a great beginner trail. Mostly flat gravel through the entire 50 km's. I started in Bellevue and worked my to north of the trail. I believe this is best way as you get good practice and speed on the return trip. A great place to get used to gravel riding and learning to control your bike at higher speeds. Also - look for 4 - 5 smaller skill trackers on the side of this trail, they are great to play on as well. Very fun trail, just remember the food because the gradual incline of the ride will wear on your quickly!
