Kitty’s Gorge Walk Trail is one of the beautiful walks accessible from the historic town of Jarrahdale. An hour’s drive south-west of Perth, Jarrahdale is an ideal day trip for a walk and lunch at the winery or one of the cafes.
Originally a timber mill town in 1872, with the last mill closing in 1997, Jarrahdale is now a historic town using its jarrah trees for tourism instead of logging.
Kitty’s Gorge Trail is 7-kilometres (14-kilometres return) trail that follows the Serpentine River and Gooralong Brook. Along the way, it passes impressive granite outcrops and the brook’s many waterfalls. This Top Trail has steep loose sections and uneven ground and requires a degree of fitness. It can be accessed from either the car park opposite the cemetery in Jarrahdale or from the falls car park in the Serpentine National Park.
