Zig Zag Scenic Trail

Distance : 3.5 km one way | Time to Complete: 40 minutes (walking)  NOTE: All are approximate and will vary depending on individual fitness and ability levels.

Located in Gooseberry Hill National Park, a walk or cycle on the Zig Zag will reward you with spectacular views over the Perth metropolitan area and the City.

The Zig Zag was created as part of a series of railway switching points where trains reversed direction in order to climb the steep 1 in 30 grade of the Darling Range. Wildflowers are abundant in late winter and spring.

The Zig Zag Scenic Trail is open for walkers and cyclists only from 8.30pm to 11.00am, and for walkers, cyclists, and vehicles from 11.00am to 8.30pm. 

Walkers and cyclists may move up or down the Zig Zag, however vehicles may only drive down.

Dogs not permitted.
