Paths Less Travelled in John Forrest National Park, Perth, Australia
29th of September 2016
Thought I might try out the Rocky Pool Trail. Should have brought a machete as this trail appears a little unloved.
- Location: John Forrest National Park, Perth, Western Australia, Australia
- Start or End: I started and finished at the bus stop on the corner of Morrison Road and Myles Road, Swan View and walked east along Morrison Road (up a hill) to the park. Could 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. You can drive and park within the park, but entry fees do apply.
- Length: 24.3km (15.1mi)
- 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.
