The Hike - Mornings at Ball Creek can be a bit of a chilly affair with the campsite being raised almost 300m above sea level and deep in the forest. If you're lucky then the trees will be shrouded in mist and you can enjoy the sun streaming through the canopy as it gently rises. My first visit here I was lucky to get these conditions and it made for some excellent hiking (despite the very cold conditions). Once you've packed up your gear make your way across the open sandy soils for an immediate crossing of Ball Creek, a very seasonal watercourse that I've only ever seen trickling once. From here you join a management track that will be home for the few couple of kilometres. While it has been slightly burnt over the past couple of years, the regrowth provides some greenery to offset the blackened trunks of the Jarrah.
