The track follows the path taken by Captain Theo Fawcett, who blazed a trail through the forest in the 1800’s. Much of it runs along old rail embankments, where trains once hauled timber from the forests.
The track begins at Dawn Creek Road near Nanga Mill and ends at Quindanning. It is not designated as one way and can also be completed in the opposite direction beginning at Quindanning. It is wide enough in places for cautious passing.
There are picnic places along the way but no campgrounds and camping is not permitted.
Maintenance to the track is ongoing and it is CLOSED during winter. For more information contact the Dwellingup Work Centre (08) 9538 1078.
Distance: 105km one way. Time: Allow 3 hours. Difficulty: Moderate to difficult -suitable for medium to high clearance vehicles with dual range and all terrain tyres, for drivers with reasonable experience or 4WD training, travelling in groups of vehicles.
