Kitty’s Gorge is a 16.5km, grade 3 Return hike located in Serpentine National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.
The 16 kilometre return Kitty’s Gorge Walk Trail is one of the beautiful walks accessible from the historic town of Jarrahdale. An hour’s drive south west of Perth, Jarrahdale is an ideal day trip for a walk and lunch at the winery or one of the cafes.
Originally a timber mill town in 1872, with the last mill closing in 1997, Jarrahdale is now a historic town using its jarrah trees for tourism instead of logging. Kitty’s Gorge Trail follows the Serpentine River and Gooralong Brook. Along the way, it passes impressive granite outcrops and the Brook’s many waterfalls. It has steep loose sections and uneven ground and requires a degree of fitness. It can be accessed from either the Car Park opposite the cemetary in Jarrahdale or from the Falls Car Park in the Serpentine National Park. If walking from the township of Jarrahdale include the short loop of Staceys Track. While in the area, why not try one of the many other walking trails. They range from short ambles to longer challenging trails, more details and maps can be found in the “Walks Around Jarrahdale”” booklet and CD which is available at Visitor Centres or outlets in Jarrahdale for $9.50.
