I read this semi-interesting account of it recently. Sounds like it's virtually impossible to follow without a GPS trace, provided the one you get is accurate. It runs through the Kalamunda Circuit map I'm drawing, hence the interest since I've seen various signs for it about the place. The part of it where it comes out near the weir looks deadly to ride.

We only did a small part of it, as you can see from our trace, as we followed this route. Would have been easy to follow with a decent map, but you can't just rely on the signs.

Some very nice mountain bike tracks all around the area. The southern part of where we walked is perhaps not as great for MTBO because there is a lot of private land around which would limit options, but I presume you're mapping more to the north of Mount Gunjin.

Your walk from the 6.5km-13km points are on the existing Gungin map (which is to be incorporated into the larger KC map).

The next nearest map is the Carinyah map, which is immediately SE of where you started. We could potentially include the area from your start through to KC because there are trails through there but they're not that great or interesting although there are several narrow trails in the area where you started (0-2km) that I'll get around to investigating one day although probably only worthy of a sprint map.

Looks like you walked up 'Whore No More' (at your 4km mark). I imagine walking it is easier than riding it.
