I walked this with my Dad sometime in 2020, we got drizzled on a little bit but had a good time and took some goofy pictures at the ghost house. We definitely walk briskly but I wouldn't say this is a full day hike, handful of hours at most. Can see some cave openings on the walk where the earth has collapsed, which is pretty neat!

Good walk, lots of wildflowers out. Couple of areas on track that could be better marked for Ghost trail. We ended up in the closed wetlands track and had to back track. Saw lots of birds, could hear the frogs and generally nice walk.

Walked this trail in mid-July going east->west (counter-clockwise) at a leisurely pace, taking 4hours and 40mins. Kangaroos were out near the beginning of the trail and there was great variety of plants on the trail, something I've rarely encountered in other nature walks near Perth. The foliage was quite lush in parts and there were a number of interesting rocky outcrops to admire. The trail is largely flat with reasonable incline/declines in sections, although mostly firm footing across all (no ball bearing gravel) sections, although there are small protuberant rocks sections at paths, making for tripping hazards if you aren't watching where you are going. As others have mentioned, caves are often just off the path. I'd definitely recommend this walk.

Definitely takes less time than advertised. A nice walk with some good rock sections and caves just off the path.

The Yanchep National Park has alot to offer for people who are time poor but want to get out in nature and away from suburbia. Nice trail, marked clearly but also maps are available on many online maps, so it was easy to navigate. Birdlife is crazy, listened to so many beautiful songs, shared the path with Kangaroos. Yes the house is only remains, but it is beautiful in its own way. Completed my walk in 2 hours plus 30 min lunch break. It was great to walk and appreciate the types of flora and fuana that are unique for this area of W.A.
