Bald Head Walk Trail
Torndirrup National Park
Directions - From the centre of Albany take Frenchman Bay Rd into Torndirrup National Park until you reach Salmon Hole Rd. Take a right here and then take a left onto Murray Rd. The trail starts at the top of a gravel road that comes off Murray Rd (it is well signposted), where you'll find a small car park.
2022 Update - The trail is now open after a lengthy revitalisation project to address erosion issues and protect the fragile environment along the peninsula. This should see Bald Head continue to be one of the best trails in the state, along with being able to handle the increased visitor numbers.
The Hike - One of the best day hikes in Western Australia, Bald Head is a trail that I first hiked way back in 2015 when it was only known to locals and the only information you could find online was a short write up with a couple of photos. Fast forward to late 2020 and thanks to the rise of Instagram, an increase in popularity of hiking and a travel ban forcing many people to explore their own backyards, Bald Head is a mainstay on a lot of the WA tourism accounts. Over the years my original page for this hike has received a bit of traffic as it's well searched for online but as with most of my early posts, it didn't have a lot of depth and the photos really only showcased the first half of the hike.
