Description

Kitty’s Gorge Walk Trail is one of the beautiful walks accessible from the historic town of Jarrahdale. An hour’s drive south west of Perth, Jarrahdale is an ideal day trip for a walk and lunch at the winery or one of the cafes. Originally a timber mill town in 1872, with the last mill closing in 1997, Jarrahdale is now a historic town using its jarrah trees for tourism instead of logging. Kitty’s Gorge Trail follows the Serpentine River and Gooralong Brook. Along the way, it passes impressive granite outcrops and the Brook's many waterfalls. It has steep loose sections and uneven ground and requires a degree of fitness. It can be accessed from either the carpark opposite the cemetery in Jarrahdale or from the Falls carpark in the Serpentine National Park.

The trail starts out following the ‘official’ kitties gorge trail, and then turns off to follow what seems to be an old logging track/older trail, once you cross the stream. The way is marked by blue markers. There are a lot of very very bitey ants on the upwards track past the creek, and gaiter or thick socks would be good. It’s a bit slippery/rocky in places so walking sticks also a good idea. Comes back through some nice forest with rocky patches.

Really beautiful trail with a great variety of terrain and scenery. There was no water in the river so will definitely come back after some nice rainfall.

Great trail. Best to start before sunrise to beat the crowds, get there early enough and you’ll see kangaroos and wild pigs. Beware, service roads connected to the trail are not sign posted! (Don’t digress!)

Great alternative to the normal kittys gorge trail. We took the Stacey's Loop trail to start then met up with Kitty's approx 1.5km in at the old campground (clearing). After following Gooralong Brook for a while you cross the stream and head up a long hill to the top of the ridge. Sneaky views through the trees up here are lovely but watch out for the ants! tge meander through the pine forest at the end is a beautiful way to finish the hike.

Great Trail. Can’t wait to see it when the water is running. One long steep incline to the summit.

Great view, marked well to keep you on track and you can swim/enjoy the picnic area with kangaroos after. Park entry is around $15 and be mindful that when the park reaches capacity it closes so aim to be there before 12pm during peak periods (summer and school holidays).

First hike in years. Very overgrown in sections along the blue route - requires some map checking and bush bashing to keep it interesting. Cool views from the rocky clearings.
