The walk to Mt Trio is a medium 3.5km, 2 hour return walk. Walking is not recommended in wet or windy conditions or in extreme heat.

7. Mt Trio

Mt Trio (Warrungup) is so named because it has three separate peaks linked together by a plateau. The first third of the path is steep but the remainder is easy. The path is initially a boardwalk and continues up the plateau and on to the summit, 856m above sea level. From the summit there are sweeping views of Toolbrunup and other peaks to the... More

8. Toolbrunup Peak

The 4km, 3-4 hour return walk up cone-shaped Toolbrunup Peak is more challenging than scaling Bluff Knoll, with some rock scrambling towards the top, but the views are worth the effort. The peak stands 1052m above sea level. This walk is not recommended in wet or windy conditions.

Reasonably soon after you pass through a damp, shaded moss and... More

Take a short and somewhat steep walk to the top of a small knoll to enjoy impressive views of surrounding peaks and the Porongurup Range to the south.

14. Mt Magog picnic area

You can stop here and enjoy a picnic on the table provided, but the 7km, 3-4 hour return walk should only be attempted by the very fit. It is hard and there is no path for final 1km to the summit. This trail starts in tall wandoo woodland and leads through open country and thick bush to provide excellent views. The track is quite overgrown in... More

15. Western Lookout

This is a great place to stop and enjoy expansive views looking east across the Stirling Range National Park.
