Muirs Highway is a Western Australian highway linking Manjimup and Mount Barker on the Albany Highway. It is signed as State Route 102[1] and is 161 kilometres (100 mi) long. It provides a shorter distance between Manjimup and Albany. It is a lonely highway surrounded with karri and jarrah forests with no settlements in between except the small farming settlement of Rocky Gully.

Muirs Highway was named after brothers Thomas and John Muir, the first European settlers in the Warren district, who settled at Deeside in 1852 and built a rush hut there in 1856.[2]
