IT was third time lucky for Trek the Trail, with about 2000 people attending the event in Chidlow last weekend.

The event was cancelled the previous two years because of severe weather warnings.

“This year we were lucky to be able to show off Lake Leschenaultia as people walked and cycled from Chidlow,” Shire of Mundaring president Helen Dullard said.

“For the first time we also had runners participate in the event.

“About 2000 people came along to enjoy the wildflowers, fresh air and variety of stalls at Lake Leschenaultia.”

The free annual event encourages people to walk, cycle or run along a section of the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail.
