We have been here a few times and loved it. A flat and well-maintained path with very little rubbish on it, really good for leisurely bike rides. Always surrounded by very curteous cyclists too, so much better than the bike paths on the roads. The track is quite long, so you just turn around when you have had enough and... More

There's plenty of options to take on this circular loop through some lovely Perth hill towns. For a short visit, park at Swan View and its a short walk into John Forrest where there are great views, waterfalls in winter, picnic benches, old railway bridge and tunnel. It's a relatively flat to cycle along with a couple of cafe stops... More

This if a terrific walk trail that is suitable for a family stroll or a serious long distance hike that can take you as far as Kalgoorlie if you so desire. There are nice stops , kids parks, coffee shops ,pubs etc along the way. PJ Barker author of the motorcycling novel ,Changing Pillion.

It's lovely to go cycling on this trail in sunny weather. Apart from enjoying the weather you enjoy the bush surroundings. We cycled from Darlington to Mundaring, arriving at Scuplture Park for a tea break. If you enjoy nature and cycling, this is a great trail to ride on.

This wonderful track is kept in good condition by the Shire of Mundaring and volunteers for all its 70 km length. Choose a spot to start from including the under appreciated John Forrest National Park which along with the natural wonders has a tavern and a tunnel, As the track follows the old railway lines it has comfortable grades and...

Your stroller needs to be robust, as the path is a bit stony, but its flat and people take bikes and strollers along the wide path. It used to be a railway line and it goes past a couple of falls but the highlight is definitely the old railway tunnel - bring a torch as it gets dark inside! The... More

Today we 3 drove to Helena Valley with the intent on walking the Helena Valley to Chidlow (6km one way) component of the trail. Our plan was to detour to Lake Leschenaultia at the half way mark for lunch then walk back to Helena Valley again. Perfect weather for walking - 23 degrees, clear and sunny. There is a sign... More
