King Jarrah Heritage Trail is a 18km, grade 4 circuit hike, located in Lane Poole, Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

CLOSED due to bushfire damage (at May 2016)

Located within Lane Poole Reserve near Dwellingup in WA’s beautiful Peel Region, this five-hour loop walk features a 300-600 year old tree, the "King Jarrah".

The track begins at Nanga Mill, which is 10.5 kilometres from the Lane Poole entry station, along the Murray Valley Road via Bobs Crossing. This class 4 track (18 kilometre loop) takes about five hours. Most people treat it as a day walk, but for those wishing to take their time and make a weekend of it, there is a small campsite near Big Brook, roughly mid-way along the track. It has a fire ring and toilet. King Jarrah Walk Trail follows the river for much of the way and provides access to fabulous jarrah forests. Expect some steep sections on the western side of the trail.The highlight of this walk is the "King Jarrah"

About the region

Just over 100 kilometres from Perth lies Lane Poole Reserve. Covering more than 50,000 hectares it is the largest park in the northern jarrah forest. It was named after CE Lane Poole, the state’s first Conservator of Forests, who did much to ensure the sustainable management and conservation of Western Australia’s forests.

The park is popular for recreational activities including canoeing, bushwalking and mountain bike riding. The Murray River, the longest permanent river and one of the few major rivers in the jarrah forest remaining undammed, provides a range of canoeing opportunities while the Bibbulmun Track and Munda Biddi Trail both pass through the park.
