Crooked Brook Forest is a beautiful recreation site situated just 25km from the centre of Bunbury, in the Shire of Dardanup and adjacent to the beautiful Ferguson Valley.

Great running trail and also makes a beautiful walk trail. It is well signed (signs were replaced or remarked early 2016 I think) there is 180m of elevation over the loop. The full loop is actually 8.8km - 8.9km so a little short of the 10km suggested, If you add in the shorter 1.5km trail around the creek/dam thing 10km is possible for those looking for distance.
Great view from the lookout around the 8km mark. 3 main hill climbs get the heart rate and lactic acid pumping. Mainly solid bush sand or pea gravel surfaces that are in good condition.
Plenty of Kangaroos, Cockatoos and other wild life around the course.
Toilets, water fountain and BBQ huts (Electric BBQ's) at the main carpark.
A shorter 1.5km loop around the dam is also a nice run/walk.
There is a 600m concrete pathway around the dam / creek thing where my kids spend hours racing each other on their bikes while I'm cooking lunch. Love this trail, run out there every couple of weeks. Beautiful.

A really enjoyable walk, most of the trail is in the bush with very few tourists when we went. The trail is quite easy but concentration and focus is required in some spots along the trail. Definitely worth visiting!

Nice walk with good signage markers.... It is quite an easy walk with no real challenges....
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.
