As you head East out of Jarrahdale, turn right into Kingsbury Drive for your descent out of the Darling Range via the Serpentine Dam. Along this route, you will have the opportunity to admire the seasons expressed by the occasional orchard. You will pass the turn off to Pipehead Dam completed in 1957. This was the first stage of the Serpentine Dam, constructed for the purpose of supplying water to a rapidly expanding Kwinana Industrial area. 27 km further on, is the Serpentine Dam.  Construction of this Dam was completed in 1961. There are numerous picnic spots and free barbecue facilities available, as well as a Café and public toilet facilities in two locations.

Crossing the Serpentine Dam wall, Kingsbury Drive continues, offering the peace that only a great expanse of Jarrah and Marri Forest can. Past the forest expanse, you will see the Karnet Prison Farm on your left and further down on the same side is the Bodhinyana Buddhist Monastery.

Your cycle closes with spectacular views over the Darling Scarp before reaching South Western Highway.

You can also connect Kingsbury Drive Road Cycling to Nettleton Drive Road Cycling which starts in Byford, offering a great experience through quiet backroads for enthusiast road cyclists, with a mix of uphill and downhill for a total length of 45.4km from Byford to Serpentine.

Supported by great organisations

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.
