Bell Gorge Walk Trail is a 4km, grade 2 Return hike located in King Leopold Ranges Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2-3hrs to complete.

Summary

The Bell Gorge Walk is a four kilometre return walk from the Car Park at Bell Gorge to a section of the creek just above the falls with spectacular views of the gorge and waterfall.

Beautiful Bell Gorge, with its stunning waterfall, bushwalking and Bird watching, is located in the King Leopold Range Conservation Park in the Kimberley to be accessed from Gibb River Road between Derby and Kununurra.  Be rewaRoaded with spectacular views and walk the marked two kilometre, gently sloping trail from the Bell Gorge Car Park down to the gorge. The Bell Gorge Car Park is about 40 minutes drive from Gibb River Road.  Following wet season rains, great volumes of water cascade from the King Leopold Ranges.  In the dry, tourists are attracted to the spectacular cascading waterfalls at Bell Gorge, a relaxing place to swim. The base of the falls form a deep pool surrounded by ledges and sheltered by rocky walls that is a superb spot for swimming. However accessing the base pool is a more difficult section of the trail. If this popular site is too busy for your liking, you can also explore upstream.   Make sure you bring your camera as Bell Gorge is one of the most picturesque and scenic gorges in the Kimberley. The folded rock formations were millions of years in the making. You can go camping not far from the gorge at Silent Grove campsite – this is pristine wilderness at its best. No camping allowed at Bell Creek.
