Trail Description

The Balmoral Trail follows a former tramway from the Mundlimup Timber Trails to the Balmoral POW Camp. It is part of the Munda Biddi Trail. The trail goes through bushland and some farmland. Along the way, the trail passes a log-loading ramp and several "shield trees". These shield trees have numbers carved into them and were used by foresters in the 1920s as a grid reference system. The Balmoral POW camp is located at the end of the trail which can be accessed by vehicle.
