Length: One way five kilometres
Return 10 kilometres
Trail classification - Class 4
Time: Allow three hours return
Follow the Bibbulmun Track markers. Your hike begins at the Hilltop Lookout with excellent views over the Nornalup Inlet to the Southern Ocean. Your trail descends for two kilometres through splendid karri and red tingle forest which in springtime is alive with wildflowers. Take care crossing the busy South Coast Highway. You will then walk along a trail with special views of the Nornalup Inlet before arriving at the Coalmine Beach Caravan Park. Follow the dual purpose path before arriving at the Coalmine Beach Picnic area–a nice place for a swim!
At this point you can choose to return to Hilltop Lookout or continue a further two kilometres to Pioneer Park in Walpole.
