Echidna Walk Trail 1.5km
( approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour)
1. Walk upslope on the Jarrah ironstone mesa to a lookout at a breakaway.
The trail continues north near the breakaway edge. This section is very uneven with ironstone outcrops on the trail.
6. The trail gently climbs an upland saddle/valley with vegetation that varies from Powderbark and Wandoo overlooking the Calothamnus gully, and then below the lookout plateau.
7. The trail becomes sandy as it weaves through granite rocks under rock sheoaks.
Check for orchids here in August- September.
9. The last stage of the trail is through Jarrah / Powderbark woodland with a dense understorey of Pingle Banksia/Dryandra squarrosa.
