Korung National Park
Directions - Driving up to the hills from Welshpool Rd East, continue to the end and turn right onto Canning Rd. Follow this until you reach the left turn for Glenisla Rd then turn right onto Union Rd and then right onto Morton Rd. The start of the trail is at the top of the hill at the intersection of Morton and Anembo Rd.
The Hike - With a free Sunday morning before meeting up with friends for a games day, I decided to get up before dawn and check out one the many Shire of Kalamunda walks I had not done already. With so many other adventures planned over the past couple of years, rarely have I made time to get out and explore a new trail close to Perth so I'd thought I would rectify that. The Carmel Walk came to mind because I wanted something of a semi-decent length, wasn't dependent on running water being a feature and didn't involve a lot of suburban/road walking. Having previously walked parts of this trail when doing the Kattamordo Heritage Trail, I knew it would be a fairly enjoyable Sunday morning stroll.
