Jarrahdale Balmoral Trail is a 11km, grade 1 One Way hike located in Balmoral POW Camp Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

This 11 kilometre rail trail follows a former tramway from the Balmoral POW Camp to Mundlimup Timber Trails. It is part of the Munda Biddi Trail. The trail is easy and accessible to both walkers and mountain bikers.

The Balmoral Trail starts or finishes at the Jarrahdale World War II POW Camp. The trail goes through bushland and some farmland. Along the way the trail passes a log loading ramp and several “shield trees””. These shield trees have numbers carved into them and were used by foresters in the 1920s as a grid reference system.nSignage describes its operation and explains the ruins that remain. At one point the rail formation crosses a private farm. Stiles have been provided to allow access across the farm
