Hard track
Starting from the car park on Lights Road, Ocean Beach, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Hallowell and back via the Sheila Hill Memorial Track. An oasis of stunning Karri Forest, wildflowers and fungi, Mount Hallowell is a hidden gem in the South West that nature lovers will adore. Running concurrently with a stretch of the Bibbulmun Track, the Sheila Hill Memorial Track takes walkers past Monkey Rock on the way to the summit of Mount Hallowell. The route is a good mix of forest walking, climbing between granite boulders and sections that open up to expansive views of the coast and Wilson Inlet. Beginning as a relatively easy walk through bush and granite, the track rises quickly and steeply, leading to many enormous granite formations. You will be skirting Monkey Rock as you follow the track, without any signs that tell you there is actually a spur. The climb up the rock is quite worth it as the views that welcome you are stunning. Keep in mind that the terrain becomes more challenging as you go up. Near the highest point of the track, a short spur leads to the summit of Mount Hallowell. More stunning views await you there looking back towards Peaceful Bay and then it's all downhill back to the carpark. The trail is well signposted, with the Bibbulmun Track Waugal and plain yellow arrows providing clear navigational information. Although the trail is relatively clear and straightforward, the rocky terrain is highly uneven and potentially slippery. 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.
