A great walk for the whole family, no hills. You return the same way, so you can only want to walk part of the way if you wish. In overgrown areas the track

CAMP WALKS

Mt Hassel Walk
Time: 2 to 2.5 hours return. Distance: 4km return
Track: Well marked Difficulty: Medium
Mt Hassel doesn’t have as many steps as Mt Trio, but does have a
short scramble to the summit. You can drive to the Mt Hassel carpark
on Stirling Range Drive or leave for the Mt Hassel Walk from Mt Trio
Bush Camping & Caravan Park.

For the adventurous an ascent of Toolbrunup Peak can be made from
Mt Hassel via a saddle connecting the two mountains. This walk will
take a day and require awkward rock scrambling and crawling through
bush tunnels. For more information ask John.
Toolbrunup Peak
Time: 3 to 4 hours return. Distance: 4km return
Track: Well marked Difficulty: Hard
Toolbrunup Peak is a more challenging walk than Bluff Knoll, but the
sense of achievement at reaching the peak and the views on the top are
certainly worth the effort…. a 360 degree magnificent view.
Mount Magog
Time: Day return. Distance: 8km return
Track: Pegs at end Difficulty: Hard
There is a lovely picnic spot area amongst Wandoo trees at the start of
the walk. There is a good walk trail at the start but it becomes hard
walk with some overgrown thick bush. There are pegs as markers for
the final kilometre to the summit.

Mt Trio
Time: 1.5 to 2.5 hours return. Distance: 3km return
Track: Well marked Difficulty: Medium
Bluff Knoll (Bular Mial)
Time: 3 to 4 hours return. Distance: 5km return
Track: Well marked Difficulty: Medium
Mt Trio is a terrific walk and is known as the flower mountain especially
during Spring. At an altitude of 856 m Mt Trio has a great vista. The
walk starts steeply with lots of steps but levels out at the halfway point
to be a pleasant walk.

The Stirling Ranges is one of the world’s most important areas for flora,
with 1,500 species packed within its boundaries.  More species occur
in the Stirling Range than in the entire British Isles and 87 plant
species found in the Stirling Range occur nowhere else on earth. 

The entrance to the Mt Trio walk is from Formby South Road, 6km
south of Salt River Road.
A very popular walk with all ages.  Even in the midst of winter many
people brave the elements to catch a rare glimpse of snow in Western
Australia at the top of Bluff Knoll.  A well constructed track climbs the
peak from the car park below the northern cliff face.  It traverses the foot
of the cliffs and breaches the escarpment at the saddle between Bluff
Knoll and Coyanarup Peak.
