Description

This is a difficult walk in the Korung National Park, with some steep loose descents and taxing climbs. There are great views over Bickley Reservoir and the city with wildflowers in abundance in the spring time.

The trail markers for this walk are pale blue

Start point: The southern end of the car park.
1. Go through the white gate and walk in a southerly direction. The track skirts the brow of the hills with views over the Swan Coastal Plain, city and southern suburbs.
2. Take the left fork and walk uphill. The track climbs steeply to a small plateau with Wandoo trees and a view to the airport, city and coastal plain.
3. Arrive at a crossroad. Walk straight ahead, you will come across a marker in a tree immediately through the crossroad. The forest here consists of Jarrah, Casuarina and Banksia tree’s.
4. Turn right, walk towards a mesh fence bordering the Kanyana Wildlife Sanctuary.
5. Before reaching the fence, turn right as indicated by the markers and head in a westerly direction. Ignore a well made track to the left, continue in a westerly direction. The coastal plain can be seen through the trees.
6. After a steep decent out of the Jarrah Forest, the track is more open country with views on the left of the Bickley reservoir and the Bickley Valley.
7. Most Southerly part of the walk.
8. Take the right fork at the T-Junction at a watercourse. Walk uphill.
9. Turn left at this junction and return to the car park.

To help reduce the spread of Phytophthora Dieback:

Don’t spread soil or mud around bushland, in particular during spring & autumn;
Stick to tracks & paths;
Observe signage in your local bushland reserve and stay out of quarantined areas in bushland.
