The Blackwood River Walk is a six-kilometer loop trail, starting at Blackwood River Park in Bridgetown.
This trail follows the Blackwood River, winding along the riverbank through the lush green forest. It's a particularly beautiful walk to do on a frosty morning, when the birds are singing and mist is hanging in the air.
This is a grade one walk that is relatively flat and suitable for wheelchair users who have someone to assist them. For more Points of Interest and things to do at Blackwood River National Park, download our free Every Kid in a Park app, or click the link in our bio.
