The Lewis Road Walk is a difficult 5km loop trail through the Mundy Regional Park, taking in stunning views of Perth city, Swan Coastal Plain, Regional Parklands, and the Darling Scarp.

The trail passes through wandoo woodlands, with red gums and small jarrah trees among some of the lush native flora on show, with magnificent wildflowers during wildflower season (August to October).

The trail commences at the carpark at the northern end of Lewis Road, 20 kilometres from Perth, and only 10 kilometres from Kalamunda.

With some steep climbs and loose descents with slippery gravel, some bushwalking experience is advised. 

The trail markers for this trail are red, although signage is scarce with no trailhead so please consult the trail map and trail notes, available at the Shire of Kalamunda website.

Amazing city view along the walk. You could see lots of birds in the trees. There was not enough signs. Be aware of the bull ants, and they loved your shoes and pants...

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.
