Dale Road to Beraking
Directions - Take Brookton Hwy east from Armadale until you reach the turnoff for Ashendon Rd. Follow Ashendon Rd for 3-4km before making a right turn on Dale Rd. Dale Rd takes you all the way to the summit of Mt Dale but the Bibbulmun Track crosses at Omeo Rd, where there is an area to park your car.
The Hike - After completing a previous section of the Bibbulmun Track in July using Mt Dale as a starting point, I was keen to come back out and head north this time. An early start beckoned for the hour long trip to the base of Mt Dale off Brookton Hwy and it looked like it was going to be a nice sunny day. Instead of starting at the top of Mt Dale like I did before, I parked on Omeo Rd where the Bibbulmun Track crosses Dale Rd. The destination today was the Beraking campsite, about 10km from Omeo Rd and through some fantastic sections of bushland.
