Starting from the Bluff Knoll Carpark at the end of Bluff Knoll Road, Stirling Range National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Bluff Knoll and back. One of Western Australia’s few mountain wildernesses, the Stirling Range National Park is a place of contrasts. Blessed with rugged mountain peaks rising to 1095 metres above sea level at Bluff Knoll (the highest peak in south-western Australia), the Stirling Ranges span 65 kilometres from east to west. The Bluff Knoll hike starts at a large interpretive shelter near the carpark, and the path from there is very easy to follow. The trail is steep in places but well marked and well maintained throughout, with steps in place for much of the early steep inclines. Once you reach the rocky plateau that forms the peak of Bluff Knoll, you'll be rewarded with spectacular views over the surrounding Stirling Ranges and even as far south as Porongurup National Park. Bluff Knoll is continually surrounded with a dense layer of mist, that swirls around the summit as the wind pushes it between the gullies and the rocks. Make sure to bring warm clothing, as it can get very cold at the summit. Mountain mists, wind chill and rain can occur on the mountains at any time and there are even snowfalls most winters on the peaks. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
