This is a fairly easy walk through a range of marri, wandoo, brown mallet, and  rock sheoak woodland, with a wealth of spring wildflowers. Little pink fairy, stark white spider, sugar, jug, red veined shell orchids, and hairy-stemmed snail, cupped, and brown-banded greenhood orchids grow in the valley section. The trail will have four interpretive signage points soon (2022):

  • Spider orchids: Stylish stars of springtime
  • Greenhood orchids: Plain but ingenious
  • Triggerplants: Nature's gorgeous gunslingers
  • Ochre: The colour of nature

Much of this trail is shared with cyclists, who are expected to ride slowly and give way to walkers.

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.
