Starting from the Mount Hassell car park off Stirling Range Drive, Stirling Range National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Hassell and back. Prepare for an amazing range of colours in the wildflower season. The track to the summit has steps that begin moderate, leaving their place for steep scree sections later on. Many rocky platforms are located on or near the trail, where walkers can take a break and enjoy the views. As you come closer to a ridge, the track gets steeper. You'll then cross a saddle through some thick bush. The final scramble up the small section of rock that forms the summit is easier than it looks from below, though extra care should be taken when the rocks are wet and slippery. After negotiating the rock face, walkers are rewarded with a close-up view of Toolbrunup and sweeping views of the remainder of the national park. The trail is well marked and easy to navigate, with some steep climbs and moderately difficult scrambling. Wear sturdy footwear and weatherproof clothing, and carry plenty of drinking water. There may be sudden temperature changes that can lead to rain or even hail, so come prepared. The upper parts of this track should not be walked under bad weather conditions. 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.
