Paths Less Travelled in John Forrest National Park

Perth, Australia

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started and finished near the Pechey Road Carpark on the western side of John Forrest National Park, which is accessible via bus from Midland Train Station (Google Map Directions). Alternatively, take the bus to the front of the park at the corner of The Great Eastern Highway and Park Road, then walk down Park Road into the park (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 24.3km (15.1mi) in about 8hr
  • Grade: Hard. The Eagle View Walk Trail isn't that bad but it can get steep in spots. The Rocky Pool Trail is very overgrown and rock scrambling was necessary. A long walk. Be careful around the waterfalls, it's a long way down.
  • Date Walked: 29th of September 2016

The Story

Thought I might try out the Rocky Pool Trail. Should have brought a machete as this trail appears a little unloved.
