This trail can be broken down into shorter return sections or the full length of it can be walked as an overnight hike with camping available at the Fitzgerald River inlet.

Point Ann to Lake Nameless Lookout 10.6km return 3 - 4 hours

This is an easy section and is sandy underfoot. After a short beach walk the trail ascends through heath and then groves of Christmas trees to the Nuytsia Lookout. It then continues to the Lake Nameless Lookout for good views of the inland peaks as well as the lake. There is the option of a return path via the beach all the way.

Point Ann to Point Charles 26.8km return 9 - 10 hours

The section from Lake Nameless to Point Charles  is a more strenuous section with undulations and rocky terrain. There are lookouts along the way offering more coastal and inland views with the central wilderness peaks dominating the landscape directly ahead. It is possible to return via the beach.

Point Ann to Fitzgerald Inlet 31km return 12 -13 hours

The trail from Point Charles to the inlet crosses the sandy mouth and follows the inlet to the camping area. Note there is no water at this site.

Fantastic trail as a day hike or overnighter

Very easy overnight walk with gorgeous beach and mountain views along the way. Mamma and baby whale at the start! Weird biodiversity along the walk, and breathtaking beaches with stunning rock formations. Path is well defined, shoe cleaning stations are worn out, spur to overnight campsite along the inlet was overgrown when I went and the actual camp site was terrible. If you do it as a day walk make sure you go down to the beach at the mouth of the FitzGerald River before you turn around, because it's the best bit!
