Quenda Trail is a 4km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Yallingup Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.

Summary

This four kilometre trail can be undertaken as a loop trail or a coastal beach walk past the magnificent granite outcrops of Torpedo Rock then ending at Smiths Beach Car Park.

The Quenda Trail contrasts dense dune heathland vegetation and wild flowers with coastal views and a beach walk. It heads south from Yallingup through the coastal heath behind Smiths Beach, then loops back via a 1km walk on Smiths Beach’s white sand and limestone outcrops past a couple of surf breaks, including the well-known Supertubes break. Of course the walk could also begin and end at Smiths Beach if that’s more convenient. The circuit is about 4km long and takes around an hour to an hour and a half to complete the walk. From late winter through spring there’ll be a plentitude of wild flowers in bloom in the coastal heath. The best time to walk the Quenda Trail is definitely in cooler weather because the inland section feels very dry and arid beneath a hot sun and the sandy track gets hot to walk on.   On a hot day in the middle of summer skip the inland track and just go for a walk along Smiths Beach and have a swim! The Quenda Trail is one of six short to medium length walks beginning in Yallingup, the others being the Torpedo Trail, Ghost Trail, Caves Trail and Wardanup Trail. These trails are all interconnected and the Quenda Trail links up directly with the Torpedo Trail, as well as the long-distance Cape to Cape Track.
