About the Trail

As you head East out of Jarrahdale, turn right into Kingsbury Drive for your descent out of the Darling Range via the Serpentine Dam.
Along this route, you will have the opportunity to admire the seasons expressed by the occasional orchard.   
You will pass the turn off to Pipehead Dam completed in 1957.  This was the first stage of the Serpentine Dam, constructed for the purpose of supplying water to a rapidly expanding Kwinana Industrial area.  27 km further on, is the Serpentine Dam.  Construction of this Dam was completed in 1961.  There are numerous picnic spots and free barbecue facilities available, as well as a Café and public toilet facilities in two locations.
Crossing the Serpentine Dam wall, Kingsbury Drive continues, offering the peace that only a great expanse of Jarrah and Marri Forest can.
Past the forest expanse, you will see the Karnet Prison Farm on your left and further down on the same side is the Bodhinyana Buddhist Monastery.
Your cycle closes with spectacular views over the Darling Scarp before reaching South Western Highway.
