    Bells Rapids

    8:30 amMeeting Point: Guildford Train Station Carpark
    Walk

    Bell's rapids is on the (Upper) Swan River and is a popular place for dog walking and kayaking. The walk I would like to take you on crosses the Bells Rapids Bridge, follows the Pilgrim Trail along the Swan River to Walyunga National Park and then returns in a loop via a series of fire breaks.
    I think that this is the most beautiful and scenic walk proximal to Perth. The river is beautiful, there are rocky outcrops, pockets of different trees, thousands of Grass Trees,views up Avon Valley, views over Perth City, Grey Kangaroos (and brown ones) and lots of birdlife (assorted ducks, pigeons, eagles). The other great thing is that the area is not in a National Park and is dog friendly.
    The walk should be completed in about 4 hours, longer than expected for a 6km walk but it is moderately challenging and there is a 200m ascent and descent.
    Unfortunately, the walk will take us across some very exposed areas and if there is wind and rain it will not be as pleasant and will be very cold. If heavy rain is forecast, we will have to possibly postpone to the following week.
