As the days become a little cooler, the Perth Hills offer an escape from the hustle of the city with an abundance of peaceful trails across the majestic Darling Scarp. Embrace the beauty of our native bushland with these trails that cater to all levels of ability and range, from quick loops around natural springs to longer, half-day jaunts – all best enjoyed with man’s best friend. Our top 3 picks also showcase the wildflowers and birdlife native to the area, so you’ll be sure to find a trail that will captivate the whole family (dog included)!


The Valley Loop Trail

Winding down the hill at Lesmurdie Falls, this trail runs beside a babbling brook and takes you to a lookout offering sweeping views over Perth. Recharge and stop for lunch at the breezy, shaded picnic area at the top of the falls.

 


Piesse Gully Loop

This scenic walk takes you to Kalamunda’s Rocky Pool and is lush with seasonal wildflowers and creeks that flow in the colder months. It also includes a section of the Bibbulmun Track, so you can get a little taste of one of the world’s greatest long-distance walking trails.

 


Whistlepipe Gully

Dogs and kids alike will enjoy splashing in the gully or, if you allow it, getting muddy on the trail. The best time to take this walk is after a rain shower in Spring so that you can experience flowing rapids and wildflowers in full bloom.
