The Sheila Hill Trail begins from Ocean Beach road, (just north of Heather road) Denmark and ends at Lights road, Ocean Beach (at the beginning of the Monkey Rock Trail). From the town centre of Denmark, it is approximately 6km, taking around a 5-minute drive.

From the Sheila Hill carpark follow the plain yellow markers uphill until you reach the signed junction of the Bibbulmun Track which climbs gradually through tall Karri and Marri forests with beautiful ocean scenery and magnificent granite outcrops. Between September and November there is a large variety of wildflowers to be seen along the trail. Enjoy the extensive panoramic views from the summit of Mt Hallowell before decending past Monkey Rock, (a large granite outcrop worthy of a short detour) to the end of the Trail at the Monkey Rock carpark on Lights road. Dogs are permitted on this trail but must be on leash at all times. 

The Sheila Hill Trail can be challenging with some steep rocky sections and caution should be excercised as the granite can be slippery. This site has Dieback cleaning stations close to the start and end of the trail. Please make use of these stations to prevent the spread of the biodiversity threat.

This trail is part of the many other smaller trails within the larger 1000km Bibbulmun Track.

One of my favourite trails in Denmark especially as it's one of few that are dog friendly. The Bibbulmun Track follows most of the same trail with absolutely outstanding views right through.

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.
