TRAIL LENGTH & SURFACE
The trail is 1.2km in length. It is an ‘easy walk’ circuit – beginning and ending at the Northcliffe Visitor Centre.
It has minimal inclines and a compacted surface making it an easy walk. It requires a low level of fitness.
The trail features four wooden boardwalks linked by a path made of shale and/or limestone.
The trail passes through many different vegetation types – from coastal heathland near the Visitor Centre to towering Karri forest. For more info about the flora and fauna along the trail visit the ‘Our forest‘ page.
In wetter months the boardwalks can be slippery so care is required.
While the trail is not promote as ‘wheelchair-friendly’, it can often accommodate wheelchairs during wetter months. The trail has a compacted surface however there are some points with slightly raised ‘speed bumps’ designed to help shed rainwater and minimise erosion. These will perhaps require additional assistance to traverse.
Most prams with can negotiate the trail without issue. Prams with wider wheels find it easier.
We have had several mobility scooters go through the trail without great difficulty.
