Channel 10 Tower Walk
Korung National Park
Directions - From Roe Hwy, take the Welshpool Rd East exit heading towards the hills. Follow this all the way to the top and continue on until you reach the turn-off for Pomeroy Rd. Parking is on the verge opposite the old windmill.
The Hike - So here we are, the Channel 10 Tower Walk. It's been discussed many times on the podcast about perhaps being one of the worst trails in Perth and because of that I was really looking forward to hiking it. My podcast partner Donovan can be a bit hyperbolic when it comes to burnt Jarrah so when he didn't rate it very highly, I really wanted to capture it in a good light and show that all trails can be beautiful. This of course meant saving it for spring time when the wildflowers would be in bloom and whatever was lacking in terms of great scenery or trail design could be patched over with photos of the unique and colourful wildflower display that livens up the Perth Hills every year. That was the plan but not being able to travel over Easter plus a new ethos over the lock down period to explore more Perth trails meant I was going to tackle this one at arguably the least aesthetically pleasing time of year.
