Trails Strategy

History
HikeWest (previously as ‘Bushwalking WA’) was represented on the Stakeholders Reference Group for the development of a Statewide Bushwalking / Hiking (including Trail Running) Strategy in 2018-2019. The strategy, to cover the decade to 2030, includes important implications for the way in which bushwalking itself could be governed in the future. HikeWest contributed a Discussion Paper in 2018, participated in several meetings and forums, and reviewed an early draft of the strategy. A new draft was then released by the strategy consultant and a DLGSC-led Project Management Group for a public comment period. HikeWest submitted comments in September 2019 on the draft taking account of the input of member clubs obtained via a HikeWest online feedback survey. The finalised Strategy was launched on 24 June 2020.  An implementation plan is now being developed to deliver meaningful outcomes across the 10-year strategy timeframe. 

Issues
The following are some of the key issues for bushwalking that HikeWest hopes to see addressed as an outcome or extension of the Strategy and its recommendations:
