Starting from the car park on Lights Road, Ocean Beach, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Hallowell and back via the Sheila Hill Memorial Track. An oasis of stunning Karri Forest, wildflowers and fungi, Mount Hallowell is a hidden gem in the South West that nature lovers will adore. Running concurrently with a stretch of the Bibbulmun Track, the Sheila Hill Memorial Track takes walkers past Monkey Rock on the way to the summit of Mount Hallowell. The route is a good mix of forest walking, climbing between granite boulders and sections that open up to expansive views of the coast and Wilson Inlet. Beginning as a relatively easy walk through bush and granite, the track rises quickly and steeply, leading to many enormous granite formations. You will be skirting Monkey Rock as you follow the track, without any signs that tell you there is actually a spur. The climb up the rock is quite worth it as the views that welcome you are stunning. Keep in mind that the terrain becomes more challenging as you go up. Near the highest point of the track, a short spur leads to the summit of Mount Hallowell. More stunning views await you there looking back towards Peaceful Bay and then it's all downhill back to the carpark. The trail is well signposted, with the Bibbulmun Track Waugal and plain yellow arrows providing clear navigational information. Although the trail is relatively clear and straightforward, the rocky terrain is highly uneven and potentially slippery. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the car park on Ocean Beach Road, Ocean Beach, this walk takes you past the Denmark Community Windfarm and Back Beach to Lights Beach and back via the Wilderness Ocean Walk Trail. This trail traverses the pristine coastal environment of Wilson Head Reserve, linking the Denmark Community Windfarm at Ocean Beach with Back Beach and Lights Beach. Along the trail you will experience panoramic views of the the Southern Ocean, Wilson Inlet, Monkey Rock and surrounding farmland. The trail has lookouts, seating and interpretive signage along the way, with amenities at both Ocean Beach and Lights Beach. The rugged coastline has many separate beaches ending in ancient granite rocks, dune cliffs, or stretches of hills rolling into the ocean, giving each beach its own character. The stunning coastal scenery and exposure to ever-changing weather provide a range of photographic opportunities on any given day. Watch out for the delicate shapes, hues and textures of various plants, as well as colourful displays of wildflowers in spring. The trail is a shared-use bitumen path. Please be respectful of others by keeping left and adhering to signposted speed limits. Although the gradient is mostly undulating, it can be quite steep in places. To protect the plants and animals and also for your own safety, stay on the formed trail and wear appropriate footwear. While the water might look inviting, swimming is not advised as the Wilson Head Reserve coastline is treacherous, with large waves, rips and unpredictable swell. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
