Also known as Mandurah Coastal Cycle-way. This is a great trail to walk but is definitely not suitable for cycling. It's ok if you wish to ride at walking pace but anything faster than that you will be met with a concrete path with varying grip, off camber bends, bends that are too sharp (90deg) to take on a bicycle, at any speed. The path disappears at one point and there isn't even an arrow painted on the ground to tell you which way to go to rejoin it. If you do happen to make it to the end, without injury, you may find the concrete has ripped your tires to shreds. Doesn't even come close to complying to Australian standards for cycle-ways and should be avoided.

Very scenic trail, lovely on a bike. During the summer it can be busy but worth the adventure. I love looking at both the houses and the beaches.

This trail d is rather easy to walk, and extends all the way to Falcon Bay and beyond. Although it does have a few steep-ish hills it's easy enough to walk/run. In some places there are no footpaths, so roads or dirt edges are used instead.
It does get windy in parts, but overall a lovely walk with spectacular views.

It's a very popular path. We went on a Sunday morning and we saw plenty of other people running, walking and on bikes.
