Starting from the car park at the end of Lewis Road, Forrestfield, this walk takes you on a circuit along Whistlepipe Gully, returning via the Connor Road Track. The scenery on this hike is beautiful, with the gully banks lined with lush green foliage, paper-bark trees, and various wildflowers. Heading out from Lewis Road, Whistlepipe Gully remains a constant companion to the left of the well-maintained trail. The path winds through the forest, passing the mysterious ruins of architect Wallace Greenham’s home. From the ruins, the trail eventually leads to a large granite outcrop, providing spectacular views of the Swan Coastal Plain, with Perth visible in the distance. The trail is well marked with pink triangular markers and white Shire of Kalamunda signs with the top corner painted pink. Despite a lack of stylistic unity in the signage, the trail is relatively easy to follow. Although the terrain along the trail is mainly very easy, some steep sections on laterite soils can be slippery. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
