Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of Mount Trio Access Road off Formby Road South, Stirling Range National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Trio and back via the Mount Trio Walk Trail. This is a short and steep 3km return hike in the Stirling Ranges, with a total ascent of 350 metres and lots of steps along the way. Mount Trio might not be the biggest, the most difficult or the longest climb in the Stirling Range, but it is still a tough little hike. There is an informational signpost at the starting point, followed by a boardwalk. After the minimal warm-up, it's straight into the serious gradients until you reach the broad saddle between the north and east peaks. From the saddle, it's an easy stroll to the north peak where you get 360-degree views of the Stirling Range, including a great look at Mount Hassell and Toolbrunup to the south-west, Bluff Knoll to the east, the farmland to the north and the rest of the Stirling Ranges to the west. There is a picnic site at the start/finish of the trail that has plenty of shade provided by the trees. Walking is not recommended in wet or windy conditions or in extreme heat. 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.

Mount Trio Summit
Mount Trio Summit

Mount Trio comprises three separate peaks linked together by a plateau. Its Aboriginal name is Warrungup, meaning "three become". At an altitude of 856m, Mount Trio provides amazing views of the Stirling Range. Given its location between key peaks and relatively short path to the summit, it's a great place to watch the sunrise or sunset. You can come across a colourful blanket of wildflowers if you come in spring (or early summer).
