- Neil Hawkin's Park to Hester Ave: This land was once part of a stock route. Lake Joondalup (meaning "the lake that glistens") is a large freshwater lake that was well known to the Aborigines as a favoured camping and hunting ground. On the eastern side of the trail paperbark and shoreline vegetation dominate, while on the western side tuart, marri and parrot bush are common. The trail enters Neerabup National Park via old quarry access roads. The top of the ridge provides views to the Indian Ocean.
- Hester Ave to Romeo Road: The trail continues in Neerabup National Park through jarrah and sheoak. Then the vegetation changes from low banksia woodland to coastal limestone heath. From the top of the limestone ridge there are 360 degree views.
- Romeo Road to Yanchep National Park: The trail continues close to Wanneroo Road and this area has been severely degraded by fire and weed invasion. Then it passes close to Pipidinny Swamp and enters Yanchep National Park. There is a large grove of tuarts to the west. Once in Yanchep National Park, the track meanders near Loch McNess, which was a traditional meeting, corroborree and ritual area.
