Most riders park at Spalding Park on the western side of the Coastal Highway and use the pedestrian bridge to access the north side of the river. Proceeding in a clockwise direction you head along the limestone escarpment with several tracks meandering along the top but all going in the same general direction.
There are several bridges along the track that can be used to cross over to the southern side of the river and head back to the start. The southern side is lower lying on a clay based soil and tends to be a faster more flowing affair.
This trail is dual direction, please follow the local rules accordingly:

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
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.
