Deep River Loop Walk is a 4.2km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Walpole-Nornalup National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.

Summary

This four kilometre hike takes in the summit of Mount Clare, the karri and tingle forest and the suspension bridge on the Deep River. This loop walk will take around one and a half hours.

After reaching the summit of Mt Clare, the Bibbulmun Track descends to the Deep River. From there the reflections can be admired from the suspension bridge. After returning to Tinglewood Drive, this gravel road is followed to the right for about one kilometre, then a track to the left returns the hiker to the Mount Clare picnic area.

The hike wanders through tingle and karri trees. The Deep River suspension bridge is the entrance to the Walpole Wilderness area.

The Walpole Wilderness area embraces seven National Parks, Forest Conservation Areas and Nature Reserves, totaling 363,000 hectares, including areas of classified wilderness. About 20,000 hectares within the Walpole Wilderness area are classified as”wilderness”.
