Starting from the car park on Hamersley Drive, Hopetoun, this return walk takes you to Sepulcularis Hill and back. A relatively short walk, starting 175 metres above sea level, you can see different views of the East Fitzgerald National park, which are three peaks of Whoogarup and the other three peaks of the Barrens. Different kinds of plants can be found along the path such as heaths, rushes, banksias and the weeping gum found along this trail, after which the path was actually named. You might want to bring sunscreen and water and mind the loose rocks particularly on the way down. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed. 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.
