About Yanchep Rose Trail, Yanchep NP
The trail has markers with the native Yanchep Rose emblem. It passes by Cabaret Cave and then crosses Wanneroo Road to offer a circular route that takes in some old bunkers from World War II. There is a lookout that offers views across the coastal plain, which in spring is covered in wildflowers, including the Yanchep Rose for which this trail is named. The track is limestone and sand and can become heavy underfoot as summer progresses. It is best suited to winter and spring as there is little tree cover.

The hike initially shares the trail with 5 other walks, so keep an eye on the trail markers to make sure you are on the correct trail. It is well signed and defined trail with red markers.
A large part of the trail is sandy but I found it was quite compact and easy to walk on. Scenery is nice and there are good views from a lookout which is a short detour, and well signed, off the trail.
The beginning of the walk is well shaded by large trees however a large portion you are mainly surrounded by shrub and there isn't any shade.
Overall a nice walk where I saw plenty of kangaroos and cockatoos.
