Hard track
Starting from the Lions Lookout Carpark off Welshpool Road East, Lesmurdie, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Lions Lookout Walk Trail. This loop is perfect for a quick escape into the bush, providing expansive views over the Perth Coastal Plain and an abundance of wildflowers in spring. The first section is a gentle downhill to the junction where the loop begins, and soon the noise from the road disappears as you immerse yourself in the surrounding bushland. From the junction, the trail climbs steeply to a small plateau with Wandoo trees, then continues through a forest of Jarrah, Casuarina and Banksia trees. After a steep descent out of the forest, the trail is more open country with a slight uphill journey to the junction that forms the loop part of the walk. From there, it's an easy stroll back to the car park, and you will have completed a hike through some lovely bushland with city views. The markers for this trail are light blue, and the first one can be found on the gravel track leading south from the car park. This is a moderately difficult walk, with some steep loose descents and taxing climbs. The steep parts of the track can be slippery, especially when descending, so be cautious. 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.
