Cape to Cape Track is a 135km, grade 4 One Way hike located in Margaret River Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 9 days to complete.

Summary

The Cape to Cape Walk Track runs for 135 kilometres along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west of Western Australia.  It features spectacular coastal and forest scenery, a fascinating geology of cliffs, caves, headlands and rock formations and an ever-changing display of vegetation and wildflowers.

Designed to bring people in close contact with the environment, the track mainly follows the coast, alternating spectacular sweeping cliff-top views with stretches of pristine beach. There are several inland loops, which take in some lovely sheltered woodland sections as well as the magnificent Boranup karri forest.   The trail varies from old 4WD vehicle tracks, constructed pathways, firm well-graded tracks, to rough stony paths and sandy beaches.  There are easy sections, which make excellent half-day and day walks, while some of the wilder parts are rugged and haRoad going.  To tackle the whole walk is a great challenge. usually five to seven days, but multiple access points along the coast allow the track to be completed easily in smaller segments.  Several tour operators  offer fully-guided walks and with camping along the Track and many types of accommodation close by, all comfort levels are catered for. Sections of the track that accommodate wheelchairs / prams / frames etc. include:
