About Munday Brook Walk, Canning Mills
Munday Brook Walk is a 9.9 kilometre circuit walk through the native bush of Korung National Park in Canning Mills, 35 minutes (40 kilometres) south-east of Perth. The trail is a pleasant walk through mixed forest, with glimpses of farmland and local orchards in the final stretch.
There is ample parking at the trail starting point, which is the north side of Karragullen Oval, although parking may be more challenging during period of high use (for example, on the weekends with sporting fixtures).
The trail is fairly flat and comfortable, with a few slightly steeper sections towards the end of the loop. The walk takes in mixed forest which, like most of the area, was extensively logged in the 19th century.
Care should be taken at the beginning and end of the walk to locate the markers to ensure you are on the right track. The beginning of the trail is signposted with a Shire of Kalamunda walk trail sign with a red marker in the corner. The trail markers for this walk are dark pink, although many of the trail markers appear lighter in colour (almost white) in areas that appear to have been subject to a controlled burn-off.
There are several smaller trails that cross over the main trail, it is important to refer to the trail notes and to look out for trail markers to ensure you are on the right track. Use the distances between waypoints on the map to check your progress and verify your position. Trail notes and map can be downloaded at the Shire of Kalamunda website.
Start point: The parking area at the northern end of the oval. The start point is a Shire of Kalamunda walk trail sign with a red marker in the corner.
