King Jarrah Heritage Trail, Lane Poole, Dwellingup

Overview

Located south of Dwellingup in Western Australia’s beautiful Peel Region, this five-hour walk features a 300-600-year-old tree, the ‘King Jarrah’, who’s age is continually disputed. It is less mighty these days after a couple of major fires, but still worth the walk and visit.

About the Trail

The King Jarrah Walk Trail begins at Nanga Mill and takes about five hours.  The trailhead is at the edge of the forest nea Nanga Mill Campsite. 

It follows the river for much of the way and provides access to fabulous jarrah forests. Expect some steep sections on the western side of the trail. Part of the track uses an old logging railway formation with cuttings and old bridge sites crossing Dawn Creek. Look out for the old reference trees, which were numbered to allow foresters to accurately locate their position in the bush. Some old bridge stringers are visible in the water. Further along the track is an old logging railway formation with cuttings and old bridge sites. 

Dogs are allowed in Lane Poole Reserve but must be kept on a leash at all times.
