Lane Poole Falls Track
Boorara-Gardner National Park
Directions - The road you follow to get there is called Boorara Rd and the turnoff is 100m south of Northcliffe on Windy Harbour Rd. Follow this unsealed road for 16km until you see the big sign for the Boorara Tree and Lane Poole Falls. It's easiest to enter in the Boorara Tree into Google if you are using GPS instead of Lane Poole Falls.
The Hike - With a full day of new trails planned and Mount Chudalup already under the belt, it was time to move on to the second of my planned hikes around Northcliffe, the Lane Poole Falls Track. Not to be confused with Lane Poole Reserve near Dwellingup, this 4.75km there and back trail takes you through the Karri forest to another of the South West's granite waterfalls (more like a large rapid). As I stated in my directions piece, getting there was a game of questioning my navigation and trusting my intuition but I arrived safely in the end and found I wasn't alone. Instead of the grey nomads I had for company at Mount Chudalup, a maintenance crew were busy cleaning up the entry road and car park when I arrived.
