Magnet Mining Trail
Magnet Mine Trail begins 1.75km west of Waratah and traverses lush rainforest on its way to the Mount Magnet mine site. The mine site has relics to explore and good to camp. You can create a circular route using local roads, particularly if cycling. A great walk if you have the time and energy. Distance: 16km.
Take in the views from the top of Mount Zeehan (702m). This 3-hour walk along a gravel track starts opposite the Zeehan Smelters.
Recce Dam is a 120 metre high rock fill dam. The dam is 35 minutes from Zeehan via a sealed road. The road goes over the dam, continuing to the Murchison Hwy.
The walk to the top of Mt Heemskirk (14 km west) is short but physically demanding, that rewards trekkers with uninterrupted vistas of button-grass plains and the west coast. Several creeks are crossed by this trail. Mt Heemskirk is part of the West Coast Range. The track is also used by trail bikers.
Dundas (10km), a deserted mining town once connected by train to Zeehan, is a short scenic drive away.
