About the Trail

This 105km 4WD track starts from Nanga Mill in Lane Poole Reserve, Dwellingup and ends at the historic Quindanning Hotel.  It is for day use only and takes around four hours to complete. The track is currently rated 'difficult' - suitable for medium to high clearance vehicles with dual range and all terrain tyres, for drivers with reasonable experience or 4WD training, travelling in groups of vehicles.

Much of it runs along old rail embankments, where trains once hauled timber from the forests. There are picnic places along the way but no campsites. The track is not designated as one way and is wide enough in places for cautious passing.

The track has been adopted by the Armadale Four Wheel Drive Club.
