The Cape to Cape track going north from the mouth of the Margaret River to Ellenbrook is one of the best sections, and scenery wise is far superior to the section south to Redgate. It is runnable all year round provided you can cross the Margaret River, which flows quite strongly in July to Sept. (You can always swim across).
Basically just drive to the mouth – which is just north of Surfers Point.
Cross the river (if it is flowing) and cross to the dunes. Find the trail, and follow it up and across the ridge. You will descend after about 1km onto Kilcarnup Beach.
Run along the beach (best at low tide of course) and at about 4km you will come across Joeys Nose beach. The nose formation on the cliff is best seen looking south.
Follow the 4wd road out and then head up and to the right on single track, which is the Cape to Cape. It is up hill, quite twisty, and very technical here. Cross a 4WD track (Joeys Nose track) and run until the second 4WD track. Turn left and down the hill towards the coast.
Follow the track down to Gnoocardup beach, and then along the coast to Joeys nose again. From there on just follow your footsteps back to The Mouth.
