Trails improvements for John Forrest National Park

Western Australia’s first and very popular national park, the John Forrest National Park in Mundaring, is receiving some long-awaited upgrades with projects designed to bring its facilities up to a higher standard to improve the visitor experience. 

As part of this, the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) is improving the walk and cycle trails.  

The park’s upgraded trail network will include trails that are suitable for most ages, fitness levels and abilities. The works improve trail sustainability, safety and the walking experience.

Work is now complete on 10km of new class 3 and 4 hiking trails. This includes construction of a new Little Eagle walk trail, extension and upgrades to Glen Brook walk trail and permanently realigns and upgrades sections of the Eagle View and Wildflowerwalk trails.  

The Jane Brook Promenade loop has been sealed to provide access for all. 

Visitors should be aware that Scenic Drive will be closed from late September 2023 with park entry via the main Park Road entrance for the duration of construction.
