A short trail leads down into Cockleshell Gully. The first few hundred metres of the walk trail is wheelchair accessible.
Yued Ponar Trail
The Yued Ponar trail loops through a varied landscape above the Cockleshell Gully Picnic area. It passes through low heath, small sections of wandoo woodlands and winding creek lines with a high diversity of plant life typical of the park. Information along the way gives an insight to the traditional lives and resources of the Yued Noongar people through the seasons.
The trail climbs steadily, with some steep sections before following the edge of a plateau toward Mount Peron. A short spur trail leads to the summit where there are sweeping views toward the Indian Ocean and inland across the park toward Mount Lesueur. The trail then traverses 600m to reach the Kada Boodja lookout before returning to the valley floor.
A good level of fitness and bushwalking experience is recommended.
