Situated in the Gooseberry Hill National Park, the Zig Zag offers great views over Perth.
It is a popular scenic drive.
You may also like to walk the zig zag. Traffic is generally slow moving, but some care is required since there are no footpaths.
The national park offers a number of walking tracks that offer interesting side trips off the road.
The zig zag is also well used by local cycling groups.
The railway formation that the zig zag was built on continues on through Gooseberry Hill to Kalamunda and beyond.
Much of the former railway has been made into a walking and cycling trail - the Kalamunda Railway Heritage Trail.
