Formally known as the Xanthorrhoea, this is a delightful forest walk connecting Nanga Mill and Chuditch camping grounds. The walk features stands of Xanthorrhorea preissii, more commonly known as grass trees.
Directions to the start of the trail
Turn left out of Dwellingup Visitor Centre and follow the road up the side of the oval. At the end of the street, turn left into Pinjarra Williams Road. After .5km, take the right hand turn into Nanga Road, which is clearly signposted for Lane Poole Reserve.
About 7km down Nanga Road on your left hand side you will see the Entry Station for the reserve. Turn into the Entry Station and follow the signs to either Chuditch campground (about 9km) or Nanga Mill campground (about 11km in).
Car parking, picnic tables, campsites and toilet facilities are available at both Chuditch and Nanga Mill campgrounds. An undercover camp kitchen with gas barbecues is also provided at Chuditch campground.
This trail can be started at either Chuditch or Nanga Mill campgrounds. The majority of this trail is on wide tracks with gentle gradients. There is one short section of narrower trail near Chuditch that has short steep sections. The walk passes mostly through Jarrah forest with impressive stands of grass trees. Observe small woodland birds such as Scarlet Robins and Red-winged Fairy Wrens amongst the understorey, or RedTailed Black Cockatoos feeding high up in the canopy.
Be aware of vehicles and bikes as the trail shares sections of the Munda Biddi Trail and 4WD tracks.
