Off the Lead Bush Walk * No Bikes
Enjoy a short suburban off the lead bush walk at Trigg Bushland Reserve. No need to wait for the weekend or head out of the city to give your dog a lovely off the lead nature walk, check out Trigg Bushland Reserve.
The Trigg Bushland Reserve is located just off Karrinyup Road, before your reach the coast. You can park on the verge and this reserve and dogs are allowed off the lead, but must be under the control of the owner. There are several entries to the reserve, this is one of the main entries onto the main track from Duart Rd. The Trigg Bushland extends to the other side of Karrinyup Rd, but this review is of the section on the north side of Karrinyup Rd.
The main path pictured here goes from Duart Rd through to Arnott Rd, and there are bush appreciation trails that are basically just tracks through the bush that run to the north of the reserve. You can see from the map on the sign that the tracks run parallel to each other, so it's really easy to find our way around and back to your starting point.
What we love about the Trigg Bushland Reserve is that the tracks are well established and the bush is quite dense to we found our dog didn't deviate too much from the track, he was happy to run along the track and explore the bush a little, without disappearing from site.
The bushland itself is beautiful with a great range of native plants and as you can see there are lots of wildflowers also - which I'm sure there would be more of in spring.
We explored most of the bushland area and it took us about 40 mins, so if you are looking for a short bush walk without having the head out of the city, check out the Trigg Bushland Reserve, it's a lovely Perth off the lead dog bush walk.
Important: If you are planning on enjoying this walk please pick up your dog droppings - there are bags available at the bins at the main entrances, stay on the tracks to protect the bushland and keep your dog under control. We are informed that this area is currently under close watch by the City of Stirling with the off the lead status possibly up for review - so please respect this area if you wish to see it remain as an off the lead dog area.
How to Get There: This review is of the Trigg Bushland North Reserve surrounded by Duart Rd, Karrinyup Rd, Arnott St & Lynn St, Trigg.
