About Ten Mile Brook Trail, Margaret River
The Ten Mile Brook Trail starts in the Rotary Park near "Old Kate", a preserved steam engine at the northern edge of Margaret River. Much of the trail follows old timber tramway formations up the river to the Rusden picnic site at Ten Mile Brook Dam.
The 15 kilometre return trail is a combination of compacted earth and coarse gravel suitable for bikes.
A bridge over the weir allows safer access across when the river is in full flow. When you arrive at the bridge you can return to the picnic ground along this path if you choose.
The rest of this trail follows the meandering river with some wonderfull views and scenery along the way.
