Looking for a leisurely ride?
10 Mile Brook
The track to Ten Mile Brook is a gentle, combined use track. You'll find dog walkers, joggers and mountain bikes cruising this picturesque path as it follows the Margaret River through karri forest and national park. Starting from The Hairy Marron at Rotary Park to Ten Mile Brook the 15 kilometre return trail is a combination of compacted earth and coarse gravel.
The Wadandi Track is a 31km (one-way) trail stretching from Cowaramup to Witchcliffe, part of the old Busselton to Flinders Bay Railway formerly known as “Rails to Trails”. Popular with both hikers and cyclists, the gravel track takes you through beautiful natural bush, farmland and vineyards.
On arrival in Witchcliffe, I highly recommend checking out Witchy Brews in the Old Darnells Store for a wicked coffee!
Prevelly Walk/Cycle Trail
Stretching from the rivermouth, past the beach house and all the way into Margaret River, the cycle path is an easy and safe ride for the whole family connecting the coast to the Wandandi Track and town.
