About the Trail

The Deep River represents the entrance to the Walpole Wilderness area, which embraces seven National Parks, Forest Conservation areas and Nature Reserves, totalling 363,000 hectares, including areas of classified wilderness.  About 20,000 hectares within the Walpole Wilderness area are classified as “wilderness”.

The track leaves the Mt Clare parking area and follows the Bibbulmun Track to the summit of Mt Clare. It then descends via the Bibbulmun Track to the suspension bridge on the Deep River. After returning to Shedley Drive,  and turning left,  the trail follows Shedley Drive for approximately five kilometres before reaching Tinglewood Drive. A right turn returns the hiker to the starting point.
