About The Bibbulmun: September 25-October 23

The Bibbulmun Track is a 623mi/1,002km trail that runs near the Southwest coast of Australia from Kalamunda (near Perth) to Albany. This well blazed trail travels through many national parks and state forests with various terrain that ranges from dense forest to beautiful coastland. There are many free shelters and towns along the way, so this trail is welcomed to many whether they be end-to-enders, weekenders, or day hikers. Despite and abnormally rainy experience, it was quite the relaxing hike. The best word to describe it is pleasant. It was the perfect opportunity for me to wind down from the more rugged and draining hikes of the previous few months. The solitude and peace on this trail is incredibly unique for one so near civilization. The track goes through every resupply town, which is also rare to find. I highly recommend it! It may not have the most spectacular scenery for most of it, but it somehow wins the heart of everyone that hikes it for the pleasant experience. Know that most who hike this track choose to hike hut to hut in almost double the time that I chose to do this track, and enjoy a relaxed experience of not having to hike full days.

BASE PACK WEIGHT: 12lbs. 15.4oz.

On The Horizon For 2016…

Let The Drumroll Begin! For 2016-2017 I’ll be hiking several high routes, the Wonderland Trail, and then heading down under. I’ll be in Australia and New Zealand this fall and I can’t wait!
