This trail is a relatively easy walk through a forest of marri, jarrah and blackbutt. It is also a mountain biking trail and shares a small section with the Munda Biddi Trail.

The trail can be walked/cycled in either direction and passes through Potter's Gorge campground where you'll find an awesome pump track - so it's well worth taking the bikes.

The dam offers swimming, canoeing and fishing possibilities. There is also a six kilometre one way walk from the kiosk down to Honeymoon Pool.

Honeymoon Pool campground includes a picnic area, offering more than 20 campsites among trees beside the Collie River.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trail. We are not that fit, but managed it easily. Best tackled clockwise so you are going down hill for the bigger hills. Some amazing scenery along the way, especially the section about 2 km from the kiosk where the views are spectacular!

Mostly enjoyable trail starting from the Welly Dam Kiosk. Newly "graded" area of the trail proved to be very challenging on the mountain bike! It was deep and soft in parts. Otherwise beautiful scenery.

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.
