Dual Use Trail
The Sika Trail is located in Wellington National Park 20 minutes west of Collie. It is a dual purpose trail, suitable for mountain bike riding and bush walking.
Starting at Kiosk at the Dam, it winds its way through some magnificent jarrah and marri bushland, passes Potters Gorge and finishes back at the kiosk, where you can relax with a cold drink and salad roll or hot coffee and delicious home baked cakes at the end of your ride.
The total trail is 10 km but could easily be broken into two separate sections. It took me about an hour and a half to ride the section from Wellington Dam Rd/Potters Gorge to the Kiosk and back again, stopping along the way to rest and take photos and enjoying a refreshing swim at the end of my ride.
The trail is rated as moderate difficulty. Allow 3-4 hours to complete the entire trail depending on your level of experience and fitness and if you are walking or cycling.
Network of Trails to Choose From
The trail is part of a network of trails in the Wellington National Park including the Jabitj and the Kurliiny Tjenangitj that allow you to ride all the way from the Kiosk at the Dam and Potters Gorge to Honeymoon Pool. The famous Munda Biddi that starts in Mundaring near Perth and goes all the way to Albany on the south coast also passes through the area providing multiple options for walking and cycling adventures.
