Lane Poole reserve
Directions - Starting within the Chuditch Campsite at Lane Poole Reserve, from Dwellingup head towards Nanga Road and drive south until you reach the turnoff for Nanga Mill. Continue through Nanga Mill and follow the signs to Chuditch Campsite. Park at the information board before the loop road around the campsite and walk into the centre of the loop where you will find a large undercover area and trail head for the Chuditch Trail.
The Hike - Being responsible for looking after a section of the Bibbulmun Track near Dwellingup, I visit this area many times a year. Until this year, my travels had never taken me to hike the Island Pool Walk Trail and the Chuditch Trail but I was more than happy to rectify that in 2022. Having hiked the Island Pool Walk Trail earlier in the hiking season, I made a special trip out one Saturday afternoon to finish off the last of the day hikes in Lane Poole Reserve.
