Description

Experience: Wildflower Time: Half day Length: 4 km Difficulty: Grade 5 Enjoy magnificent views from the summit of Mt Toolbrunup, the second highest peak in the Stirling Range. A good degree of fitness is required for this four kilometre return hike. Toolbrunup Peak towers above the other western peaks and offers uninterrupted views in all directions but can only be reached if you are fit and agile and prepared to scramble up some steep rock sections. The trail leaves the carpark and leads through woodland, mostly following the bank of a creek and becoming progressively steeper. Beyond the woodland it rises steeply over large boulders, loose rocks and steep scree to a saddle near the top of the south-west buttress. From here it's a short, steep scramble to the top. During spring, those who reach the upper slopes will be rewarded with beautiful mountain bells and southern cross flowers. Dogs are not permitted. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

Did this with our 4yr old and 9yr old, took us 3 and a half-ish hours to get up there but just over an hour to get back down. Harder treck than bluff but way way funner. The paths get progressively rockier and steeper pretty much the whole way, definitely wear decent sturdy shoes! Lots of climbing over swathes of large rocks/small boulders. The views at the top are incredible and make the work worth it, among the best in WA.

Great walk! Agree with the other reviews, that it's more rock scramble than hike. Quite tough, but our 9 and 6 year olds did it. It took us 4 and a half hours. Well worth it- 5 stars!
