*VERY* overgrown in places and basically not marked. Despite having the trail on the GPS, it was difficult at times (around the east side of Mt Dale) to even spot where the trail was. Probably better to try it clockwise and turn in at the sign off the Bibbulmun. We went anti-clockwise and it's not even clear where the trail starts.

Pretty much as previous reviews, to be honest. This could be a nice trail if it was better marked, and the overgrown vegetation cleared away. Views were great, but the walk was less than enjoyable.

Beautiful views and the trail was obviously well constructed with quite a bit of $ for steps etc, but it has been allowed to get overgrowth with spiky parrot bush. If someone went through with a hedge trimmer and nailed in a few more blue triangles it would be a 4 star trail.

The views are what make this trail. The loop is still partially overgrown. If you start from the lookout, make sure to find the way (follow blue arrow sign). The signage is generally quite poor, no panels with description or trail photo map. The 15-20 km gravel road to get there is doable with a 2WD vehicle, however 4WD is preferred. Overall, recommended grin

I did this trail in September 2015. Despite the smoke due to prescribed burns, the views were indeed very good, but the trail was in poor condition. It was badly overgrown on the SE side and treacherous underfoot in a few places. The scarcity of signage on the W and N sides also made it hard to follow, as the track was indistinguishable from the surrounding bush/rock in places. I had no trouble getting to the location in my 2WD wheelbarrow.
