Thanks for the heads up, Trails WA! ITโ€™S OPEN! ๐ŸŽ‰ Bald Head Walk Trail has reopened! Bald Head Trail | 12.5km | Grade 4 | Full Day The extensive upgrades to the track are now complete! New boardwalks and steps have been added to help stabilise washed out dunes and prevent further erosion.This hike is pretty special with some jaw-dropping scenery of the rugged Southern Ocean coastline. A must do for any trail lover visiting Australia's South West.Although beautiful, this is a challenging a hike so remember take plenty of water and be prepared for all types of weather conditions, this is Albany so it can be cold and rainy even in Jan and Feb. Please stick to the new paths and boardwalks and donโ€™t attempt this hike after dark. Happy hiking! ๐Ÿฅพ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“ท @theleftlaners | Matt Oโ€™Donoghue Images | Breaking.the.borders ... See MoreSee Less
