Hidden little gem I happened to find on the way back from hiking Mount Pingerup. Nice little trail with beautiful views of the Walpole Wilderness.

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.
