The Carmel Walk is a moderately easy loop walk through the native bush of the Korung National Park in the townsite of Pickering Brook, located 15 minutes (12kms) south east of Kalamunda in the picturesque Perth Hills. 

The trail commences at the corner of Anembo and Morton Road, where a large gravel rock on the south side of Morton Road marks the start point of the walk, indicated by an oblong Kalamunda walk trail sign. The walk is signposted with red triangle trail markers.

A well-formed track winds through the unspoilt woodlands, taking in the vivid sounds and sites of the Australian bush and its wildlife. The walk can be completed in two separate sections, the second section offers you the opportunity to view some of Pickering Brook's farmland and stunning fruit orchards.

The park comes alive during the Australian springtime, September to November, when wildflower season is at its peak. 

The walk trail map is available on the Shire of Kalamunda website.

Liked the shade and that the hike is in two loops, so if you are caught for time you can do just half the hike which is a good option to have available.

Nice trail but only worked out to be 3.5km when following the red markers. Reviewed the map after and looked as though we had done the correct trail so unsure where the other KM's were. Was very difficult to find the start point and no real parking areas. Good shade, quite uneven so a good pair of walking shoes recommended. Some climbing required as there were a number of fallen trees across the path.

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.
