The Deep River represents the entrance to the Walpole Wilderness area, which embraces seven National Parks, Forest Conservation areas and Nature Reserves, totalling 363,000 hectares, including areas of classified wilderness.  About 20,000 hectares within the Walpole Wilderness area are classified as “wilderness”.

The track leaves the Mt Clare parking area and follows the Bibbulmun Track to the summit of Mt Clare. It then descends via the Bibbulmun Track to the suspension bridge on the Deep River. After returning to Shedley Drive,  and turning left,  the trail follows Shedley Drive for approximately five kilometres before reaching Tinglewood Drive. A right turn returns the hiker to the starting point.

Its not a bad trail however I combined the Deep River Loop & the Summit trail which all follow the same start. When you get to the Tinglewood Drive near the bridge you either go right for the Shedley Loop or left for the Deep River Loop. I don't see the point in doing first bit twice so looped around to the left and then drove out via Shedley Drive. Please be aware these roads can often be closed due to too much rain.

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.
