About the Trail

This track follows the Bibbulmun Track from the parking area on Tinglewood Drive to the summit of Mount Clare. A gradual uphill walk takes you through magnificent tingle and karri forest. From the rest area, where the Bibbulmun Track continues to the Nuyts, the walk becomes slightly more difficult, however your reward is views to the coast and across the Walpole Wilderness.

The Walpole Wilderness area embraces seven National Parks, Forest Conservation Areas and Nature Reserves, totaling 363,000 hectares, including areas of classified wilderness.  About 20,000 hectares within the Walpole Wilderness area are classified “wilderness”.

To get to the carpark drive approximately eight kilometres west of Walpole along the South West Highway. Turn onto Tinglewood Road and travel about a kilometre along the gravel road.
