Start from the northern end of the picnic area where you will spot, through the trees, a footbridge which crosses a small creek. The lower slopes of the ridge support a marri-wandoo woodland with its understorey of heath plants. A second footbridge then crosses a very small creek which is dry for most of the year.

The marri-wandoo woodland thins out and heath vegetation becomes more dominant as you climb the gentle slope of the trail. The upper slopes are dominated by grasstrees. Looking uphill to the left of the track is a depression in the hillside, it is covered in grasstrees and looks particularly attractive in spring.

On the final ascent, the trail passes around the side of the ridge before crossing the summit and leading to a lookout. From here there are spectacular views across the Chittering Valley.

If you would like to extend your walk you can explore the walkable firebreak trails around the reserve.

Walked this trail during wildflower season and it was really pretty with various wildflowers in abundance. Some lovely sweeping patches of blue leschenaultia, interesting trail and great views.

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.
