The Facts

  • Start or End: Probably best to start at the corner of Thomas Street and Reservoir Street, Chidlow (Google Map Directions) and head towards Mundaring (Google Map Directions), which has more public transport options back home.
  • Length: 18.6km (11.6mi) in about 4hr
  • Grade: Medium. Path is very flat and mostly paved, but the walk is long.

The Story

The second chapter in my quest to walk the entirety of the 59km long Railway Reserves Heritage Trail involves the tranquil Lake Leschenaultia, long gravel paths and Quenda sightings.
