Designed to bring people in close contact with the environment, the track mainly follows the coast, alternating spectacular sweeping cliff-top views with stretches of pristine beach. There are several inland loops, which take in some lovely sheltered woodland sections as well as the magnificent Boranup karri forest.
The trail varies from old 4WD vehicle tracks, constructed pathways, firm well-graded tracks, to rough stony paths and sandy beaches. There are easy sections, which make excellent half-day and day walks, while some of the wilder parts are rugged and hard going. To tackle the whole walk is a great challenge. usually five to seven days, but multiple access points along the coast allow the track to be completed easily in smaller segments.
Several tour operators offer fully-guided walks and with camping along the Track and many types of accommodation close by, all comfort levels are catered for.
Sections of the track that accommodate wheelchairs / prams / frames etc. include:
