Also know as the Jarrah-Marri Forest Trail, the Old Abattoir walk trail is 5.4km from Bridgetown centre on the Bridgetown Boyup Brook Road. Drive along the Boyup Brook road from Steere Street turnoff, and then left into the forest down a track signposted with this walk to the car park.

An easy walk track past the gazebo picnic area takes you through Jarrah and Marri forest to Kraus road then back along the creek line (1.7km). Other tracks are clearly signposted and a little more challenging.

A great place to enjoy the wildflowers as well as Western, Yellow-rumped and Inland Thornbills, Red Wattlebird, Grey Shrike-thrush, Grey Fantail, Striated and Spotted Pardalotes and Western Gerygone.

The area has been extensively logged however is now protected by Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions as a Reserve. The abattoir was opened in 1942 by Maurice Glancy and was later sold to Roland Blechynden in 1968 however was closed in 1970. Historical remnants of the Old Abattoir can be seen along the trail.

A directional map is located at the intersections to provide walkers with these options.
