The track is aligned to the Golden Pipeline Drive Trail, following part of CY O’Connor’s pipeline which continues from Mundaring Weir to Kalgoorlie. There are trail heads at Mundaring Weir and Northam, and multiple access points which means walkers from any level (from strollers to end-to-enders) are catered for. Riders can park and ride from pretty much any town along the way.

The Track passes through the communities of Mundaring, Sawyers Valley, Mount Helena, Wundowie, Bakers Hill, and Clackline. Those who want to go end-to-end can source suitable accommodation through the visitor centres.

Be prepared (see Trail Tips), leave your itinerary including an estimated return time with friends/family and firm up pick-up arrangements beforehand.

For horses it is recommended to carry a canvas bucket and have the horse shod or wear boots if going a considerable distance. At the right time of year, there is green pick on the way but if riding a full day, carry a nosebag. Horses need a level of fitness appropriate to distance and speed travelled.
