circuit

↑ 234 m
↓ -235 m

Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of Spring Road, Kalamunda, this walk takes you on a circuit past Rocky Pool via the Lower Helena Bridal Trail and Bibbulmun Track. The trail visits a beautiful natural swimming hole known as Rocky Pool, surrounded by granite boulders and a small waterfall. Descend into the heart of the park, and cool off with a swim in the enchanting Rocky Pool. This walk also offers spectacular hill and valley views. Keep a lookout for the abundant wildflowers and wildlife in the area. Keen observers can often spot kangaroos and quendas. This challenging walk is a mix of river crossings, and steep descents on loose gravel, so proper footwear is necessary. 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.
