Starting from the car park opposite the Jarrahdale Cemetery on Atkins Street, Jarrahdale, this walk takes you on a short circuit within Serpentine National Park via Stacey's Track. Stacey's Track is one of the underrated walks in the area. The easy 2km loop winds through beautiful jarrah forest and over several bridges that cross Gooralong Brook, with wildflowers and lush green foliage lining the trail. Kangaroos, echidnas and plenty of birdlife can often be spotted along the way. The trail descends towards Gooralong Brook, crossing over the first bridge and heading along the boardwalk that passes the marshy area. After crossing the second bridge, the trail starts to ascend gradually through the forest, returning to the starting point to complete the loop. This is an easy walk along mostly well-formed dirt trails, with some loose gravel, slightly overgrown sections, and a few little hills. The trail is well-signposted, set up to be done in an anti-clockwise direction following the triangular markers, with 10 numbered posts highlighting points of interest or directional changes. This gorgeous walk is best experienced in winter and spring as the brook is not dry, and there are heaps of wildflowers around. 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.
