Walk Description:
This trail named after Captain Churchman who owned the parcel of land in 1831. Approx 9kms (4 hours) with some steep inclines. Starting in Jarrah forests the trail rises following the Canning River up through the valley before veering sharply off up the hill towards the Rock Climbing Crag (pictured above) then leads to excellent views over the valley. Legend has it that Moondyne Joe’s cave is located in this park, though its exact location is unknown.
