The Forest Path at Crooked Brook is a hidden jewel for those with limited mobility, providing easy access to an area of natural bushland in Dardanup, near Bunbury. The path features interpretive signage about the flora and fauna and plenty of bench seats.
Forest Path, is a simple, well thought out concrete loop trail that circumnavigates Crooked Brook. The trail is particularly pretty in spring when the wildflowers are blooming and is accessible in the wet. The covered shelter has picnic tables accessible for wheel chairs. Other trails in the conservation park include the 10 kilometre Marri Walk, 3 kilometre Wildflower Walk and the 1.5 kilometre Jarrah Walk. The Jarrah and Wildflower circuits are more rugged trails showcasing spectacular wildflowers in Spring. Winter and Spring rains also feed the Brook making it an impressive sight. When viewing the trails on the map - the small loop is the Forest Path, the larger loop is the Wildflower Walk (part of which is shared by the Munda Biddi Trail).
