Eagle View Walk is a 15km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in John Forrest National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.

Summary

This circuit walk around John Forrest National Park offers great views across the Swan Coastal Plain to Perth city and the ocean in the distance. The trail is a bushwalker’s delight, covering a variety of relatively pristine habitats, passing beautiful waterfalls and boasting spectacular wildflower displays in spring.

Situated in the Darling Ranges, John Forrest is the oldest National Park in Western Australia and passes through varied vegetation types, including heathlands, open wandoo woodlands and mixed jarrahmarri-wandoo forest. The Eagle View Walk Trail takes walkers away from the Picnic Areas, initially following Jane Brook down the valley. It then climbs up the valley wall where you can stop and admire the view.  The trail then weaves its way up and down valleys, creek lines and hills before heading back to the Brook which it follows back to the main visitor’s area.   Signs every two kilometres advise how far you have walked and how far to go.  Hovea Falls is a pretty place for a picnic lunch when water is flowing. The 15 kilometre trail can be tackled clockwise or anticlockwise.   It’s more challenging than other trails in the park, but your efforts are well rewaRoaded. Be sensible, allowing plenty of time for the walk which, depending on your level of fitness and your interest in the surroundings, will take from about four and a half to seven hours. The trail head sign is just on the other side of the brook, appoximately 100 metres from the registration point. Through the whole length of the trail you will be guided by the yellow triangle emblem with the silhouette of the eagle on it. Sometimes these are slightly less frequent when the trail coincides with another walk trail.
