Maple Walk, Bundaleer Forest

About the Walking Trail

Explore the forest around the Bundaleer Picnic Grounds on this delightful walk, following a walking trail up the meandering creek, returning on the other side. There are numerous interpretive signs along the way detailing the tree species and other flora and fauna.

The walk begins from the picnic grounds on Springs Road, Bundaleer North, and is a loop so can be walked in either direction.

Following the 2013 Bundaleer North Bushfire and 2014 Bangor Bushfire at Wirrabara Forest, the plantation forests here at Bundaleer and Wirrabara were no longer considered commercially viable. The forests have now been leased out to private operators, however some forest access has been retained with the Bundaleer Greenway which includes the 1,200km Heysen Trail and 900km Mawson Trail (cycling), and the four trails around the Bundaleer Picnic Ground. The Bundaleer Forest Community Areas Association (BFCAA Inc) now manages the picnic grounds and recreation trails around the Bundaleer Picnic Ground. In early 2020 they opened a new playground at the picnic grounds, and a new function centre is expected to open in late 2020. There are also toilets located at the picnic ground.

Other trails in the Bundaleer Forest, which all start from the Picnic Ground, are:

Some trailmarkers along the trail are old and deteriorated, however the trail is easy enough to follow. We hope in time the Bundaleer Forest Community Areas Association (BFCAA Inc) will be in a position to update trail signage.

The trail is suitable for walkers, children and dog walkers.
