Starting from Mount Dale Picnic Site, Flint, this walk takes you to Mount Dale's Peak and back. You can traverse through the contours of Mount Dale before you reach the peak, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the Darling Ranges. The first half of the path goes through a beautiful jarrah forest and can be a little dense. The second half is more open, with views of Mount Cooke towards the south and the plains towards the east. However, the walk gets a little steeper towards the end. There is also a picnic area for families at the start of the trail, with public restrooms present. Picking a sunny winter day can help make the experience better. 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.
