Jarrahdale Bridle Trail is 26km long and is rocky, steep with gravel tracks, horses need to be booted or shod. There are some very steep hills so Breastplates are a must. 

Several small creeks seasonally flow west to where  there are views across the farmlands to the coastal plain and south over the expanse of forest. The trail is well marked and minimal float parking is available at the corner of Buckland and Jarrahdale Roads but no facilities.

There is extensive float parking and water available also at the Jarrahdale Oval, this will involve riding across Nettleton Road to the old Alcoa railway line and riding down to Buckland Road which can add a further few km's to the ride.

This is my favourite metropolitan ride and showcases the Darling Scarp beautifully. I always take new trail buddies along the southern most art of the trail. At the top (Northern most) part of the ride there is always water. Will not disappoint.

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.
