This trial runs through parkland from Mundaring to Mundaring Weir.
Along this trail you will see the "Golden Pipeline" is the longest fresh water pipeline in the world running 560 km from Mundaring Weir to Kalgoorlie. Built between 1898 and 1903, it is still in use.
The pipeline was designed by CY O'Connor, the Government Engineer-in-Chief. Sadly O'Connor took his own life only a few weeks before the pipeline started operation. More information on O'Connor can be found at No. 1 Pump Station at the end of the trail.
The trail is downhill from Mundaring the Weir. The trail deviates from the railway formation occasionally and is a little steep in places.
At Mundaring, the trail links with the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail.
The trail forms the first part of the Munda Biddi Trail.
The trial follows the route of a branch railway which ran from Mundaring to Mundaring Weir, operating between 1898 and 1952 to assist with construction and maintenance of the weir.
