#1 - Rocky Pool Walk
Kalamunda National Park
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(270)
Length: 3.0 mi • Est. 1 h 12 m
This is a pleasant walk through the valleys of Kalamunda National Park. The track follows a section of the Bibbulmun track – one of Western Australia’s premier long distance walking trails – to a picturesque swimming hole surrounded by granite boulders and a turquoise clay pit. There are many intersections along the route and junctions with other hiking trails are not well-marked, so downloading the offline map will help with navigation. Due to the absence of trail markers and the steep and loose footing along sections of the track, it is not recommended for beginners. Show more

Length: 7.8 mi • Est. 3 h 8 m
This route can get quite steep and rocky, so the terrain gets more challenging in wet conditions. Trekking boots and even poles are recommended, especially if your knees aren’t used to steep and loose terrain. Parking is available just off the south western highway and the track heads east following Wungong Brook. Follow the route south out of the gorge where you’ll have a few kms of relatively flat terrain before descending back into the gorge. You can find a few places to rest before the next hill that takes you up to the north rim of the gorge and once again descends back to the brook before you return to the car park. There are many options in Wungong regional park and nearby Bungendore Park to extend this route. This hiking trail is not well-marked, so it is recommended to download the map ahead of time. Although the route is in a forested area there are long sunny stretches so a hat and sunscreen are a must.Show more

The Bibbulmun track is about 1000 km in length, ending in Albany on the Western Australian south coast. This northern segment is one of the more hilly ones, with winter/spring waterfalls feeding Piesse Brook, which passes through Rocky Pools.Show more

A fantastic singletrack loop in the Perth Hills built to IMBA standards. Is this the best mountain bike trail in the West? The Kalamunda Circuit is a community project in partnership between The Department of Environment and Conservation, Lotteries WA, The Department of Sport and Recreation, The West Australian Mountain Bike Association and you, the Mountain Bike Community. TYPE OF TRAIL Based on the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) grading for trail difficulty the trail is a blue square trail with black diamond Technical Trail Features (TTFs). It is designed for intermediate to advanced XC(cross country) riding with log rides, log rollovers, jumps, rock gardens, ladders, drop-offs and lots of singletrack. There can be unavoidable obstacles up to 400mm high. All obstacles bigger than the blue rating will have B lines such as jumps and black diamond TTFs. RIDING THE TRAIL Although nominally a dual direction trail, most riders seem to agree that it is better ridding in a clockwise direction. There are DEC car parks on Mundaring Weir Rd at the western end and at the Dell at the eastern end. Alternatively, a safer place (from car crime) to park in the Calamunnda Camel Farm on Pauls Valley Rd. They welcome mountain bikers, the trail passes through their car park, the food is great and they even stock a few bike spares. The trail itself is an IMBA rated Blue trail. None of the climbs are too steep or arduous and there are lots of fun swoopy bermed downhills; grins guaranteed. The trail is fully signposted and maps are available to download from the WAMBA website. Show more
