This 2.6 km walktrail heads south from the McNess House Visitor Centre and is a real little treasure of Yanchep National Park. Dwindling through coastal woodlands, which support a diverse range of trees including banksia, tuart, marri, stunted jarrah, sheoak and small pockets of paperbark, this walk is ideal for anyone who would like a "taste" of the local wildlife. During spring, kangaroo paw and cats paw are in flower along with a lovely display of jacksonias, acacias, hoveas, hardenbergias etc and if you look closely will see an array of orchid species including spider orchids, donkey orchids and purple enamels.  You most likely will see native birds and parrots, lizards and other small animals while on the walk.  Kangaroos may be in the area seeking shade during the heat of the day.

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.
