The Shire of Capel formed a Trails Management Group (TMG) in late 2015 with the aim “To develop a range of trails within the Shire of Capel providing a diverse range of experiences that allow locals and tourists to enjoy and value our unique environment”.

The first trail developed under the guidance of the TMG is the Gelorup Nature Trail. Situated along the 5 Mile Brook in Gelorup, the trail has upgraded 1km of a pre-existing fire break on the north side of the Brook from Sheoak Park on Bussell Hwy to the Community Centre on Hasties Road. The trail due to its location and purpose improve connectivity, and provide environmental, physical and social benefits to the community of Gelorup. The next trail that the TMG is currently working on is the Boyanup Heritage Trail.

The Shire of Capel has a Trails Master Plan and a series of walking and cycling trails in localities such as Capel, Boyanup, Dalyellup and Gelorup.

For more information on the Trails Master Plan and existing trails visit the Shire of Capel website.
