About Chuditch Walk Trail, Lane Poole Reserve
Take the opportunity to visit Lake Poole Reserve near the townsite of Dwellingup where you can enjoy this walk and many other trails and activities.
This moderate hike from Chuditch Campground to Nanga Mill and back winds through the Jarrah forest, lined with impressive stands of grass trees and the occasional glimpse of the Murray River.
Much of the walk is on wide tracks with gentle gradients, besides a few hills here and there. There are plenty of facilities along the way, including campgrounds, picnic tables, car parks and toilets.
