The starting point for the trail is on the south side of the main carpark, next to the toilet block.

This track requires you to be reasonably fit as it climbs up gravel tracks to Baldwin's Bluff. You will pass through jarrah and marri woodlands, eventually coming to wandoo woodland and then finally over exposed granite.

The trail leads to a lookout point with great views of the Perth Coastal Plain and back down the Serpentine River Valley.

The Serpentine Falls area often fills to capacity and is then closed to new visitors - plan to arrive before 10am.  Bring a picnic lunch or BBQ and enjoy the falls after your hike.

The national park is open every day between 8:30am and 5.00pm - standard entry fees apply.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
