Start Point: End of Spring Rd, Kalamunda
Distance: 5 kms
Duration: 1-2 hours
Rocky Pool Walk is a delightful 5km/1-2hr family friendly trail that commences at the end of Spring Rd, Kalamunda and is a haven of wildflowers and granite boulders!
This trail has plenty of ups and downs, and steep ones at that! The rocky descents can be a little tricky so please take it easy (especially with little ones). Just over half way, the well marked trail will lead you Off The Beaten Track for a few hundred metres down a narrow bush track to a gorgeous little stream. The tranquillity of the environment here is really superb! Not far up the trail is Rocky Pools, a natural watering hole with a small waterfall, which is a great place to explore and cool off (which the kids will love)! The final leg follows a section of the Bibbulmun track through Piesse Brook, the narrow windy trail ascends alongside a flowing stream, a lovely way to end your Rocky Pools experience.
Having visiting this trail for the first time mid-Autumn and seeing it bone dry, I was pleasantly surprised today to find it full, flowing and surrounded by a colourful array of blooming wildflowers. The beauty of the flora, tranquillity of the cascading stream and picturesque views of Piesse Brook Valley make the Rocky Pool trail one of my favourite family friendly trails in Perth.
