There are no views from this trail other than a glimpse through the trees of the ocean and the surrounding wilderness if the short spur trail is taken to the summit of Mt Clare. Walking anti-clockwise, the section of the Bibbulmun Track down hill from the Mt Clare hut to Deep River is steep, narrow and winding through dense forest undergrowth. I expect it would be slippery when wet. The small suspension bridge over Deep River at the bottom of the descent is a nice attraction and marks the half way point of the loop. The third quarter of the walk is along a flat, unsealed road which affords a more open view of the Karri forest than the enclosed Bibbulmun section. The final quarter of the loop through the forest back to the carpark is up a steep, unsealed road. I enjoyed this walk. It's a loop with a variety of trail conditions and forest experiences. Walk it clockwise instead if you wish to experience the ascent on Mt Clare.
