About this place
Castle Rock Walk Trail is a relatively steep return walk to the Granite Skywalk. Walkers need a moderate to good fitness level to participate. The path traverses yate, marri and karri forest and takes you past the famous Balancing Rock. Flat granite slabs offer views and places to rest.
Karri Lookout is a great place to take in and watch the Porongurup Range landscape, forests and wildlife. Reaching the Granite Skywalk on the summit of Castle Rock requires some serious balancing skills to get over and under granite rocks and then to climb a 6m ladder.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
