Our Christmas Tree Creek Walk is a 'meander', meaning that we take our time.... it's not without it's challenges however it's designed for those who like walking at a more relaxed pace so we've allowed more time.
Situated in the Darling Ranges, John Forrest is the oldest National Park in Western Australia and passes through varied vegetation types, including heathlands, open wandoo woodlands and mixed jarrahmarri-wandoo forest.
The Christmas Tree Creek Walk Trail is classified at a moderate walk and while it may be a shorter version of the Eagle View Walk Trail, it does not lack in views and challenging climbs. On the 10.5 kilometre loop, you will follow alongside creeks, walk amongst wildflowers and finish with a glimpse of the Hovea Falls, as you near the end of the trail. Also with National Park being a popular spot for kangaroos, be sure to keep an eye out on this particular trail.
A good level of general fitness is required even though we are walking at a more relaxed pace, but expect some steep inclines to traverse with loose and slippery surfaces. (Poles or a walking stick will aid and shoes with good grip)
Meet with our Adventurous Women Guide at 9.00 am - John Forrest National Park, out the front of the Rangers Office, which is adjacent to the car park.
We will commence the walk at no later than 9.15am and finish around 3pm (approx) so please be punctual for the commencement of the walk and ensure that you don't need to rush off at 3pm, should the walk run over time for any reason.
