Ok, that is enough for today. Time to head home. My legs are tired and I still have to walk back to the Great Eastern Highway to catch the bus. It is times like this that I wish I had a car. Bus services to this area are not that frequent, so you really need to time your walk well. If I didn't catch the next bus, I would have to wait another 1.5 hours.
All up the walk ended up taking me 5.5 hours, 1 hour longer than I though. I swallow my pride and sign out at the Ranger office, admitting it took me longer than expected. It could have been significantly shorter if the walk wasn't so photogenic. By the end of the walk I had taken over 200 photographs! No wonder it took me so long to walk 15kms. There are a few tricky climbs over rocks at Jane Brook, but apart from that the walk is not that arduous.
I definitely recommend the Eagle View Walk Trail. It is one of the best bushwalks I have taken on in Perth. Probably best visited in winter or spring, especially if there has been plenty of water. I have a feeling it would be unbearable during the summer heat.
As a final note, on the bus ride back home I realised I didn't really see that much animal life. Sure there were a few birds flying about (heaps of crows, a few parrots and finches), plenty of birdsong, but nothing really rustling in the bushes. When I usually go for a bushwalk I am often startled by something moving the undergrowth. But not on this walk. Not sure why? Anyway, take a walk on the Eagle View Walk Trail. Definitely worth a visit.
