The Ultra Trail Ride, Run or Walk at 50km is a formidable challenge. The event takes teams of 2 to 4 cyclists, walkers or runners on a journey from Bakers Hill to Swan View through the picturesque West Australian countryside.
The course will take the teams from the tourist information park in Bakers Hill along the Kep Track past Chidlow to Mt Helena before switching on to the Railway Heritage Trail through Parkerville and the John Forrest National Park to finish at the location of the old Swan View Railway Station. At the end of the course participants will pass through the old railway tunnel which at 262 metres in length is very dark inside and can be quite wet. Head or hand held torches are recommended for the transit through the tunnel.
