The following week Dave was back out on the trail once again this time completing the third section from Jarrahdale to Del Park Road, a 50km adventure.
Read his journey below.
I departed Jarrahdale quite early and made my ascent up quite comfortably until I got to the deep eroded part which I personally felt would be safer to walk through. There was a few challenging hills with added pea gravel but I got through these patchy areas and found firm ground.
I crossed a sealed road and after a few bends came across a lemon orchard with plenty of ripe lemons, a beautiful sight of dark green leaves and bright yellow lemons,
I continued on along gravel roads back down hill till I came to a bridge crossing with some water trickling underneath. It's a nice spot to stop and pause, you might get lucky enough to see the cheeky blue wren.
Now to get up the next hill and head to Dandalup Dam, a peaceful place during the week and a great place for a swim on a hot day.
On the lower side of the dam the trail continues across the dam on the right hand side. From here it's not far to the Dandalup Hut with views that go forever. I could have stayed there all day but just had a quick bite to eat then on to Del Park Road.
There was not much phone reception through this section so make sure you let someone know your route. I carried a Spot Gen tracking device that tells my partner where I am every 30 min so using the estimated finish time she was able to pick me up pretty much as soon as I finished. A great tool for piece of mind.
Hopefully this post inspires you to visit and if so, we would love to hear your thoughts on the trail. Please feel free to tag us in your adventures.
