The Loop Walk
The challenging yet spectacular Loop Walk highlights the erosive power of the Murchison River, which has carved magnificent gorges through the landscape. The hike will take you along the edge of the cliff, with views across the river, before working its way down to the river bank. Here, you can find sandy beaches, river gums and possible swimming areas, before the trail loops around and climbs out of the gorge back to Nature's Window. Hikers should carry 3-4 litres of water per person per day, wear a hat, loose clothing and sturdy footwear - there is no drinking water and limited shade along the trail.
