This loop walk starts at Rabbit Hill car park at Yallingup and can also be accessed below Caves House.  If you head north from Rabbit Hill the trail goes along the cliff line through coastal heath vegetation with sweeping views south across Yallingup township and north along the rugged coastline to Sugarloaf Rock. 

The trail climbs up over Wardanup Hill through coastal peppermint forest then down to Ngilgi Cave.  The trail then descends into the valley of Yallingup Brook and onto Yallingup township, passing the spectacular Yallingup reef and onto the beach where  you walk along the sand before climbing back up the stairs to Rabbit Hill car park.

This loop trail is well defined with orange markers to guide you along the way.

Very nice varied trail with amazing views of the Yallingup coastline. I recommend starting at the Ngilgi cave entrance and walking the loop counter clockwise, for the best scenery views while walking

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.
