Summary

This trail follows the route of the railway which ran through Kalamunda to Karragullen.

A feature of this line is a zig zag which allowed trains to climb the steep grades of the Darling Range. The zig zag itself is now a scenic drive (see Kalamunda Zig Zag trail description).
This trail starts near the top of the zig zag and runs to Pickering Brook.
The trail is being developed by the Shire of Kalamunda. As at October 2006, the trail had been well developed between the zig zag and the site of Walliston Railway Station.
South of there the trail is still being developed and may be poorly signed and a little rough in places.
Railtrails Australia visited the trail in 2006, but did not have time to cycle to full length. Additional detail on this trail would be appreciated.

The trail manager is the Shire of Kalamunda. Please report defects on the trail to Shire of Kalamunda. http://www.kalamunda.wa.gov.au/
