Warren River Loop Walk (10.5 km, moderately hard) – this walk, with its extreme beauty and diversity, has been rated one of TrailsWA’s Top Trails. Steep in sections, the trail also combines gentle paths among mossy karri behemoths, fabulous river-bank paths lined with river banksias, peppermints and Warren River Cedar, and some excellent boardwalks with viewing platforms, perfect to contemplate the amazing scenery. 

Small bridges cross numerous creeks as you traverse deep into the Warren River Valley. Mosses, ferns and fungi are in profusion, and wildflowers in season. Highlights include the whirling rapids at Heartbreak Crossing and the Warren Lookout for its sweeping views down the steep river valley. The contrasting moods of the magical river-scape and damp forests make this walk a very special experience.

It is recommended to travel in an anticlockwise direction, starting at the information kiosk. Being a loop trail, one can start at any point and walk in shorter sections if the full loop is beyond your time or energy budget. Or, at the end of your hike, you can add the further excitement of a 65 m climb up the historic fire lookout, now named the Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree.
