The Inlet Drive Cycle Path follows Inlet Drive from the Denmark River Mouth caravan park to the junction with Ocean Beach, near Weedon Hill.  It is an easy family-friendly dual-use cycle and footpath, with lovely Wilson Inlet outlooks at Poison Point, and travelling through residential and open bushland.

Facilities along the way include a picnic gazebo and public toilets at the foreshore reserve near Denmark river mouth caravan park, and a rest bench with a lookout over Wilson Inlet to Mount Hallowell at Poison Point. Denmark River Mouth Caravan Park is located at the start of the trail.

Pockets of native bushland along the way boasts stunning wildflowers and good birdlife, and water birds can be seen from the foreshore reserves along the way.

The cycle path links with the Mokare Heritage Trail, the Denmark-Nornalup Heritage Rail Trail, the Munda Biddi Trail and the Ocean Beach Cycleway, so alternative routes are possible to make this a circular route, or to extend the cycle to Ocean Beach or to the east of Denmark.

The start and end have nice views but other than that you are riding through residential area so nothing too exciting.
