Yanchep Rose Trail is a 14km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Yanchep Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.

Summary

This 14 kilometre trail meanders through the coastal plain vegetation, passing by historic bunkers and offering panoramic views from the sea to the scarp. The limestone outcrops punctuate the extensive wildflower displays in spring.  Kangaroo sightings are almost a certainty in the early morning and evening.

This trail starts at the McNess House Visitor Centre in Yanchep National Park. The trail has markers with the native Yanchep Rose emblem. It passes by Cabaret Cave and then crosses Wanneroo Road to offer a circular route which takes in some old bunkers from World War II. There is a lookout which offers views across the coastal plain, which in spring is covered in wildlfowers, including the Yanchep Rose for which this trail is named. The track is limestone and sand and can become heavy underfoot as summer progreses. It is best suited to winter and spring as there is little tree cover.
