Munda Biddi Trail

 

There is also a cycling trail called the Munda Biddi Trail that goes from Mundaring to Albany via Jarrahdale, Dwellingup, Collie, Donnybrook, Nannup, Manjimup, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Walpole and Denmark. The Munda Biddi trail is slightly longer at 1068km and was traversed from end to end by a group of cyclists for the first time during the celebrations in autumn 2013.

 

It took about 12 years for the cycling trail to be completed with planning dating back to the year 2000. More and more cyclists had started using the Bibbulmun Trail and it became obvious that a separate bike trail was needed.

 

There are 12 campsites along the Munda Biddi. The name of the track comes from the Aboriginal language and means 'path through the forest'.
