The trail is well marked with two types of markers – those located on yellow posts and others on trees. As a general rule, the markers are situated every few hundred metres or when required at critical intersections to point you in the right direction.
Munda Biddi campsites
Purpose-built cycle-friendly campsites have been built every 30-45km between towns. These are free and are marked in green on the maps. Campsites have a composting toilet (bring your own toilet paper!), two water tanks (use sparingly and treat the water before drinking), picnic tables, undercover bike storage facility, a sleeping shelter for approximately 25 people on four timber platforms and cleared tent sites.
These campsites are designated ‘FUEL STOVES ONLY’ campsites. This minimises the risk of bushfires as in warm windy weather as fires can escape very easily. It also prevents foraging for wood, which helps protect the habitat of our wildlife. Cyclists will need to carry a fuel stove (or equivalent) for cooking and a warm sleeping bag and clothing for cool evenings.
The Munda Biddi Trail campsites are not accessible by vehicles, so you’ll have to make arrangements to meet your vehicle support at public campsites or other vehicle access points marked by a red car symbol on the maps.
Please remember that the first section on the Trail, starting in Mundaring, travels 103km before it arrives in the next town of Jarrahdale and then a further 81 km to Dwellingup. These distances are too long for all but the fittest cyclists to do in one day. If you don’t wish to camp out under the stars, it is recommended that you organise a support team or arrange for someone to pick you up at the end of each day, take you to town, and then drop you back on the Trail the next day. Alternatively you can plan day trips beginning and ending in town.
Car access points
All car access points are clearly marked on the Munda Biddi Trail Maps. Please keep in mind that all the campsites have been designed so that there is no car access available.
Other camping areas
In addition to the Munda Biddi campsites, there are a number of public campgrounds accessible by car near the Trail, these are clearly marked on the Munda Biddi Trail maps. Campfires are permitted in most of these campgrounds in the designated fire rings except in the fire danger months (November – March). Camping fees may be applicable for some of these sites.
