Our overnighter through the beautiful Ferguson Valley starts at Henty Road in Burekup. We enter the Wellington National Park at the top of Mount Lennard to tackle the Lennard Track, followed by a short but steep run on a powerlines track.
After visiting award winning Dardanup Bakery our route take us further through the valley on some overgrown tracks that eventually open out near Pile Road. Overnight on the banks of the Wellington Dam reservoir.
Sunday starts with a very interesting, overgrown track past Gnomesville and the Discovery Forest, eventually exiting the bush onto Ferguson Road. It is then a beautiful drive along Henty Road out to South West Highway and back to Armadale where the Road Trip finishes.
