General Comments

A fantastic opportunity to hike the trail once again. This time with my brother and in one go (have completed the trail once before but sectionally over 15 year period). Would recommend to anyone - people from all walks of life are doing it!

Food/Supplies Comments

Used Back Country food from Kalamunda to Dwellingup. Other supplied from towns along route was more than adequate.

Favourite Section

Cannot say - loved it all. Swampy section was a hoot.

Highlights

Views from the hills. Almost fairy like. Scenes of forest with moss and fungi/mushrooms, absolutely beautiful wildflowers, karri forest and pristine coastal beaches.

Personal Reactions

A well posted trail. A phone with GPS has been handy on occasions.

Wildlife

Snakes (dugites and tiger), legless lizards, emu, kangaroo, wild pigs, a one eyed bush rat, blue tongues, birds, etc.

Your Best Equipment

$15 Coles tent at 1.3 kg. Goal zero 7pws solar panel, $2 hat from Op shop in Denmark.

Your Worst Equipment

Had none.

Advice for Others

Take your time walking this trail!
