Gentle 2.0km loop walk.

Glen Brook Trail is a slightly undulating walk through scrub and treed areas within John Forrest National Park. The majority of the walk allows view to Glen Brook Dam. There are a few steps, so a pram may not be suitable.

John Forrest National Park was originally declared as a conservation reserve in 1898, and is WA’s oldest national park. It became John Forrest National Park in 1947, in honour of the famous explorer and statesman, Sir John Forrest, who was Premier of Western Australia between 1890 and 1901.

Before or after the walk, visit the look out on the scenic drive, for views to the city and airport.

For the walk, we will allow about 1.5 hours to do the loop to allow everyone to enjoy the scenery, animals and fun things, to climb on or under, that we pass. Kangaroos are prominent along the trail. Some water bird visit the dam.

Meeting Point: Furthest carpark from entry, follow road down and to left, away from the tavern. Refer to map.


- a simple picnic for morning tea/early lunch to enjoy after the walk, if you choose to stay

Walk will be cancelled if weather is more than a light shower. If you register for the walk, you will receive a message in the morning regarding weather.

The tavern opens at 11am for coffees and meals.

Hope to see you there. Natasha
