Starting from the car park on Scotsdale Road, Scotsdale, this return walk is a short one that is suitable for families. There is a picnic table at the end of the walk if you want to rest a little with scents of eucalyptus, and the signatures along the trail give information about Denmark's history and the plantation in the area. Karri trees also make it possible for birdwatching for the interested. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
