Enjoy getting out for a run in the heart of nature? Western Australia offers an amazing mix of suitable trails for novices right through to the most experienced of Trail Runners.
Due to the heat in Western Australia, some of the best spots to go trail running are around Perth and in the South West and Great Southern regions.
Pemberton, about 300km south of Perth is a popular area due to the stunning Karri Forests that are unique to the region. Perth Hills, east of the city is another great place to hit the trails, with everything from challenging climbs to easier flat forest paths.
Rottnest Island is just a short ferry ride from Perth and is home to the fantastic Wadjemup Bidi Trail Network. The trails within this network are an absolute must for trail runners, and the bonus is for most of them you get to go for a dip as you pass through some of the stunning beaches on the way.
