The Mount Dale Walk Trail follows the contours of Mount Dale to its peak, where walkers enjoy panoramic views of the Darling Ranges. Venture through beautiful jarrah forest taking in the sights of Mount Cooke to the south and the farmlands to the east. Mount Dale was once the site of a fire lookout tower as it provides almost uninterrupted 360° views over the National Park and surrounding State Forest areas. The lower recreation site at Mount Dale provides a pleasant spot for family picnics. The area is prolific with wildflowers in spring and has beautiful wildlife such as eagles, kangaroos and reptiles to name a few. An animal viewing hide has been constructed on the north side of Mount Dale and provides spectacular views over the Helena National Park and the Darkin River Valley. Initially the trail is easy to follow through the bush but requires some navigation before ending up at the lookout. From here on descent, the trail joins up with the Bibbulmun Track, returning to the Mount Dale picnic area.
