Great Forest Trees Walk is a 8km, grade 3 Return hike located in Shannon National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

This walk joins the two sides of the northern loop of the Great Forest Trees Drive and takes you deep into the karri forest. It follows an old forestry track and is steep in places.  The walk starts at Which Tree is That and finishes at Curtin Tank.

This walk connects the arms of the northern loop of the Great Forest Trees Drive.  The walk follows old forestry tracks and is steep in places, particularly where the trail crosses the Shannon river.  Pure stands of karri forest line the walk at this point.  In winter, the Shannon may burst its banks and sometimes cut the track.  If you are not feeling up to tackling the 8km, you can get someone to meet you at the other end of the trail where it meets Curtin Road.
