About the Trail

Situated in the Darling Ranges, John Forrest is the oldest National Park in Western Australia and passes through varied vegetation types, including heathlands, open wandoo woodlands and mixed jarrahmarri-wandoo forest.

The Christmas Tree Creek Walk Trail may be a shorter version of the Eagle View Walk Trail but it does not lack in views and challenging climbs. On the 10.5 kilometre loop, you will follow alongside creeks, walk amongst wildflowers and finish with a glimpse of the Hovea Falls, as you near the end of the trail. Also with National Park being a popular spot for kangaroos, be sure to keep an eye out on this particular trail.

A good level of fitness is required and expect some steep inclinces to traverse with loose and slippery surfaces. Be sure to pack plenty of water and sturdy walking shoes.
