Turner Hill is nearly everyone's favourite trail. Despite being 1.25 hours drive from Perth it is worth the trek to blast out a couple of laps of this all singletrack loop. There are plenty of rocks and obstacles to keep you on your toes and keen to do another lap or two.

In addition to the main 11km loop, there is a short cut which makes shortens the trail to only 5km, whilst still keeping all the fun bits, and a fairly new 1.1km Green rated kids loop.

Getting There:
From Perth, travelling south on South Western Highway, turn left into Del Park Rd at North Dandalup, after about 10k turn RIGHT onto Scarp Road. (Don't let the Scarp Road to your left a few km's back confuse you! It's definitely on your RIGHT if you're following these directions.) You will see a little Munda Biddi sign at the trail crossing the road about 50m before you see the Turner Hill sign. The access road is graded dirt for a couple of km. Follow the signs in to the trail head.

From Perth CBD it takes about 1 hour 15 minutes to drive there.

Route Directions:
The trails heads off from the north side of the car park. Follow the singeltrack loop in a clockwise direction.
The full loop is 10.5km long. There is a short cut to shorten this to 5.4km.
There is also a 1.1km green rated kids loop starting from the car park.

Tips: Try the short loop - still all the fun bits but without the long climb.

Def worth a drive from Perth for a couple loops you will be well rewarded. Maybe a little tough for beginners but for anyone just a bit of experience it is fantastic. Not a downhill type trail but great cross country with a few more tricky jumps and obstacles

This is a great trail. If you are a beginner and are now transisioning from beginner to intermediate, this is a great trail to do. The drops are manageable with a bit of skill, all technical parts have a chicken track which makes it a great place to skill up. There are minimal riders here as well so you don't get the pressure of other trails like Kalamunda. I had 3 cars there when I rocked up and didn't see anyone. There is a bit of leg work though when trailing uphill, so make sure you bring a snack to replenish that energy!

I've only got this trail by it's tail. Everytime I ride it, it kicks me and throws me around! It is challenging, but also rewards you with some really magic downhill flowy stuff - but you gotta work for it. Lots and lots of obstacles and log roll overs and some rocky gardens too.
