Porongurups was the first region we lived in when we moved from the city and enjoyed this trail on many occasions. Highly recommend.

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.
