Luke Pen Walk is a 14.4km, grade 2 Return hike located in Albany Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.

Summary

A beautiful meandering walk trail, closely following the Kalgan River. The Luke Pen Walk offers a lovely mix of vegetation from large marri trees to farming pastures. Gorgeous views are present all the way along the trail.

This easy, well-formed trail takes approximately four hours to complete and commences at a well marked trail head. After a short distance you arrive at a wonderful shelter shaped like a flying kookaburra. From here, the return walk provides constantly changing views of the river, along with a mixture of vineyaRoads, green pastures with grazing cattle and eucalypt bushland. Keep an eye out for the local Noongar Aboriginal fish trap relics, wildlife including bandicoots and the many species of Birds. Ideally, the time to walk this trail is on a sunny day when the countryside is green from winter and spring rains. During summer there are various places where the trail gently descends to river level so a cooling dip is possible. A great family walk, ideal for strolling (although some sections have a slight incline) and for a picnic lunch. Remember to keep an eye on children as the trail closely follows the river. The trail can also be accessed from Wheeldon Road.
