Nice trail to do on a weekend and finish with a swim. The signage at the start is not particularly clear, but okay by the end.

I did this hike in summer toward the end of January but I would recommend to do it at a cooler time of the year as there is not many shaded section. The path is very flat however it is very sandy and can be hard to walk on. There are several sections of 4 wheel drive tracks that we follow as part of this trail which could make some sections of the trail a bit boring.
There are bush toilets, picnic tables and a hut for overnight sleepers half way through which is quite handy for a lunch break.

I found it hard to find the trail at the start but once I passed Crystal cave it was very well marked and easy to follow.

Hilly, probably more of a moderate level.

Lots of spiderwebs on narrow trail makes this nice track less fun for trail runners.

Moderate trail good for family, not suitable for seniors.
Enjoy the beautiful views on Perth Hills and Perth plains. Dont miss the walk up to falls bottom. Pause and enjoy the breeze overseeing Perth suburbs and city.

Well signed posted and great views. Only complaint is that it doesn’t open till 8am which is too late to start walking to beat the heat. I walked this path anticlockwise and so glad I did.

Lovely trail! Varying terrain from moderately technical to lovely flat 4WD tracks. The ranger tells us that we should go there again in spring when there has been some rain to fill the creeks and to see the wildflowers.

A beautiful location and the trail is really well marked.

This is a wonderful bushwalk! So excited to have finally found the cave.
It was a hit day, son it was tough. Highly enjoyable though.

Great short climb. Toolbrunup towers over you nearby. Quite steep and a solid slog. Car park entry is blind.

Best generally accessible peak in the park. Incredible views. Harder than Bluff Knoll ascent. Not for faint hearted either.

Good trail. Had some challenging parts. Really long rocky hill. Now I’m well trained for other hills like this one.

Probably not very hard if you were to take your time. I completed the hike in under 3.5hours and found it challenging to do so. Great hike though!

Rated as moderate, however some sections hard. I think it would be about 3km of soft sand at the end of the track followed by a steep rocky climb to the top. Worth every step, the scenery & geology was amazing. Bird life good too, saw black swans, pelicans, rainbow bee-eaters, grebes & little robins. Start the walk at first light as it gets very hot. A great walk

Stunning day and the wildflowers were in full bloom. Tough first half with the incline but the second half was easy peasy.

Could you please note that the Noongar name you have given to Buckland hill is incorrect. Dwerda Weelardinup is the name of Cantonment Hill which is where the Navy Signal tower is. The correct name for Buckland Hill is Berrung-Guttuck which I think means place of memory or knowledge but please don't quote me. Check with Prof. Len Collard at Curtin perhaps. Info on the name provided by Daisy Bates from informant Baabur.

Great run technical at times

Poor signage

Good to run on
