Rocky Pool Walk Trail Kalamunda

The Rocky Pools are beautiful, and the only way you're going to get to them is by hiking - a walk that's well worth the reward!


Spring Road, Kalamunda


Hard (steep hills)


5KM loop

Estimated Duration

Allow 2.5 hours

You'll find the beginning of the Rocky Pool Walk Trail at the end of Spring Road in Kalamunda, don't be alarmed if you don't see a trail sign as there isn't one (although you'll find a few markers along the way to keep you on track).

Follow the light blue markers and you'll encounter a series of stream, steep and rocky uphill and downhill descents until you ultimately reach the Rocky Pools towards the end of the walk!
Unlike Bells Rapids and a number of other 'rocky pools' in Perth you'll find these to be often quite quiet as you've got to be willing to do the walk to get to them - you can't just drive right up unlike the others.

One valuable piece of advice - be sure to wear tight fitting hiking shoes as a number of the muddy downhill sections (part of a 4WD track) that'll swallow your shoe whole (as we found out haha).

Although Rocky Pools is only a 5KM loop I'd without a doubt class this as one of the harder walks in Perth, although it's less than half the length of the Yanchep Ghost House Trail the steep, loose uphill and downhill stints remind me of Bluff Knoll.

I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
