10 Mile Brook Trail is a pleasant walk or cycle out to 10 Mile Brook Dam, named after the tiny brook that was dammed in the mid-1990s to create a new supply of water for the quickly growing Margaret River and other townships.
The 10 Mile Brook Trail starts in the Rotary Park near “Old Kate”, a preserved steam engine at the northern edge of Margaret River. Much of the trail follows old timber tramway formations up the river to the Rusden picnic site at 10 Mile Brook Dam. The 15 kilometre return trail is a combination of compacted earth and coarse gravel suitable for bikes. A bridge over the weir allows safer access across when the river is in full flow. When you arrive at the bridge you can return to the picnic ground along this path if you choose. The rest of this trail follows the meandering river with some wonderfull views and scenery along the way.
