From the start point (at waypoint ‘START’) head initially westward for 100m along McCallum Road to ‘1’. Then veer right to head initially NW-ward off-track mainly through open woodland. Veer left (westward) at ‘2’ and cross small patchy outcrops between ‘3’ and ‘5’. Cross a small gully and veer NW-ward again to soon descend gently through wandoo and balgas to cross two stream courses, veering right (northward) at ‘6’ at the first crossing. Then reach the foot of a larger granite outcrop at ‘6-1’. Climb the outcrop northward to ‘6-2’ then pass through short sections of scratchy shrubland and small rock outcrops flanking a broad ridge; Veer right (NNE) on a south-sloping outcrop at ‘7’ and then right again (eastward) on a north-sloping outcrop at ‘8’. Veer SE-ward at ‘9’ to reach the lower edge of a larger, NE-sloping outcrop. Climb southward across the outcrop via ‘10-1’ gaining a good view NE-ward across a gentle tributary valley which drains ESE into the Dale River valley. Then walk uphill via ‘11’ through a short section of scratchy Parrot Bush and continue southward to cross the crest of the ridge into open wandoo woodland. Veer left (SE) at ‘12’ to follow the ridge downhill, passing through two thickets of young casuarina (sheoak), via ‘12-1’. Veer left (eastward) along a small spur ridge and descend gently to then follow the north flank of a valley eastward, crossing two small side gullies at ‘13-1’ and ‘13-2’. Cross Metro Road at ‘14’ and continue approx. ESE through open woodland to cross McCallum Road, passing a large granite boulder on the SE side of the road. Soon after reach a (possibly dried out) pool at ‘15-1’ on the upper Dale River. Then continue ESE across a gentle ridge and meet a vehicle track at ‘15-2’. Turn right to follow the track SSE for just 100m to ‘15-3’, then veer ESE, off-track again across the quite broad flat valley floor cross a small side stream course to reach a small granite outcrop at ‘16’. Turn sharp left to initially climb very gently ENE mainly through open woodlands to ‘16-1’. Cross a vehicle track at ‘16-2’. Continue ENE, soon crossing a narrow gully and then two narrow Parrot Bush-covered ridges at ‘16-3’ and ‘16-4’. Descend across a short section of rocky ground and through a sheoak thicket to reach a low granite outcrop at ‘17’ and then veer right (ESE) to another outcrop at ‘17-1’; another good spot for a rest stop. Veer SE again and reach via ’17-2’ another small granite outcrop at ‘18’, where there is an interesting boulder arrangement and a small sharpened post (probably an old surveying point). Veer left (ENE) east to bypass a small hill top and soon descend to a larger granite outcrop at ‘19’. Turn sharp right (SSE) to cross the floor of a small valley and then cross an E-W dirt road at ‘19-1’. Climb gently southward around a hillside through picturesque open woodland via ‘19-2’ and descend a little to reach an eastward-sloping granite outcrop at ‘19-3’. Follow the outcrop generally southward along slope, with views to east, via ‘20’ and ‘21’ passing through a couple of brief scratchy sections and sheoak thickets. Re-enter forest at ‘21-1’ and continue southward to ‘22’. Cross a vehicle track at ‘22-1’ and climb gently mainly through jarrah forest and reach a small ridge at ‘23’. Veer SW-ward along slope to reach and ascend an eastward-sloping granite outcrop via ‘23-1’; a good spot for a lunch stop, with views across the surrounding forest toward the distant farms of the wheatbelt. Then head SSW upslope through partly scratchy scrub via ‘23-2’ and reach a small stand of wandoo trees near ‘23-3’ on a local hill top on the ridge. Continue SSW, gently downhill on the west flank of the ridge to another granite outcrop (at ‘23-4’). Veer right (SW) to ‘24’ and then further right (WNW) to cross a narrow gully at ‘24-1’. Then head NNW along the hillside through open jarrah forest. Veer NW on a small outcrop at ‘25’ and cross a vehicle track at ‘25-1’. Continue NW, to cross a gentle valley and then climb through some scratchy shrubland to ‘26’ toward the crest of a ridge. Veer left (initially westward) along the ridge via ‘27’ and pass through a brief scratchy section to reach at ‘28’ a granite outcrop on the SW flank; This provides a nice view to the west across the valley to another outcrop which is the next point on the route. Descend the outcrop and head westward to WSW to cross the valley via ‘28-1’, ‘29’ and ‘29-1’, initially through partly scratchy scrub and across a vehicle track (at ‘29-1’). Reach the foot of an outcrop at ‘30’ and veer right (NE) to and follow the outcrop along slope, NNW via ‘31’ and ‘31-1’. Veer left (NW) at ‘31-2’ to cross a further, larger outcrop. Descend the outcrop westward via ‘32’ to cross a small gully and re-enter woodland at ‘32-1’. Veer right (NW) at ‘33’ and continue NW-ward to return to the start point via ‘33-1’, ‘33-2’, and ‘33-3’, including the re-crossing of Dale River course, and then a final gentle uphill climb through woodland.
