End to End - Getting Started
Q: I really want to ride the entire length of the Trail. Where do I start and how do I get to the Trail?
Fantastic! The Munda Biddi Trail officially starts at Sculpture Park in Mundaring and ends in Albany. But 2WD vehicles can access the Munda Biddi Trail quite easily at many access points in between. Vehicle access points are indicated by a red car symbol on the Trail maps. Unfortunately, there is no public transport to Jarrahdale or Dwellingup. Public transport is available to Collie through the South West Coachlines and check Transwa for other public transport options.
The Department for Planning and Infrastructure (DPI) offer a map of cycle trails that can be used to link to the northernmost section of the Munda Biddi Trail. Go to the Ride Through the Hills map and click on the section you're interested in for a more detailed map you can print and take with you. DPI also provides information about bikes on trains.
From the Midland Train Station: Ride Through the Hills Ride 1 can take you to Sculpture Park in Mundaring (Munda Biddi Northern Terminus)
From Kelmscott Station: You can follow Ride Through the Hills Ride 3 Section 3 to Brookton Highway, and follow it to the trail -- but be advised there is quite a lot of truck traffic on the highway and the shoulder conditions vary. Alternately take Canning Mills Road to Canning Road where you can either take it north to Pickering Brook (see above) or south to O'Meagher to Illawarra to Dale roads to link to the trail and the Carinyah campsite. Another option is to take Ride Through The Hills Ride 3 from Roleystone, follow Croyden Road, pass turnoff to Araluen Park, follow to Gardiner Road north to Brookton Hwy where you can either turn right and follow to the Carinyah MTB Trail or left to Canning Road and Illawarra (see above). Refer to your Munda Biddi Map 1a for more detail.
*** Remember *** Allow enough time to get to your starting point and then add the riding time on the trail. For example, if you arrive in Mundaring at midday, you may not have time to reach the first campsite at Carinyah by dark.
