Starting from the Valley Head Car park at the end of Rushton Road, Martin, this walk takes you on a circuit within Ellis Brook Valley Reserve past Sixty Foot Falls and the Old Barrington Quarry. This loop trail is perfect for beginner hikers or families looking for an outdoor adventure. It takes you to the top of Sixty Foot Falls via a short but steep path, where you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Perth city skyline in the distance. The waterfall only flows after heavy rainfall and is best viewed around the end of winter or the start of spring. After visiting the falls, the trail descends towards the Old Barrington Quarry, another hike's highlight. The abandoned quarry has a man-made lake that you peer over from your viewing point, with sheer granite cliffs surrounding the emerald green waters. There is good signage and a detailed, informative shelter at the start of the trail. Although the trail doesn't have a lot of signage along the way, the path is easy to follow. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended, as the trail is quite rocky and can be slippery when wet. 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.
