Moderate track
Starting from the car park on Brookton Highway, Karragullen, this walk takes you on a circuit along Kangaroo Gulley and Stone Creek via the Carinyah Trail. The Carinyah Circuit is a moderately easy loop that joins the epic and adventurous Munda Biddi Trail. Here you can walk or cycle along Kangaroo Gulley amidst jarrah and marri forest with granite outcrops and an understory of balga and banksia. The Carinyah Circuit consists mainly of wide 4WD tracks with a generally firm surface, and for around half its length is shared with the Munda Biddi Trail. The loop is clearly signposted and can be done in either direction. The gradient is mostly gently undulating with a few steeper sections and very few natural obstacles or technical trail features. Keep an eye out for loose dust and gravel as it gets pretty dry over the summer months. The trail is a shared by walkers and cyclists, so consideration has to be taken for other users. 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.
