Starting from the car park at the end of Pinnacles Drive, Nambung National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit through the Pinnacles Desert and past the Pinnacles View Lookout via the Desert View Walk Trail. This is one of the park's most popular trails because of the views and easy access to the Pinnacles Desert. From the main car park area, a concrete path leads to the start of the Desert View Walk Trail. The concrete path ends as it leaves the heathland, providing the first sight of the Pinnacles Desert. The trailhead is well signed, providing a map of the walk and some safety information. Comprised of naturally well-compacted sand, the trail is mostly flat with only a few gentle rises. An interesting aspect of this trail is that there is no set path. Instead, walkers can choose their own course between the marker posts placed at regular intervals and freely explore the otherworldly environment. The best time of the year to go is spring, with blooming wildflowers and cooler weather. Summer is very hot and dry. It is advisable to avoid visiting from December to March. Wear sunscreen, long sleeves and a hat to avoid sunstroke and sunburn, and carry enough drinking water. The trail crosses the vehicle track at various points (which is well marked with rocks), so watch out for cars. Please treat the Pinnacles with respect and never attempt to climb these fragile structures. 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.
