Starting from the car park at the end of Stony Hill Road, Torndirrup National Park, this walk takes you past Stony Hill Lookout, then to Peak Head and back via the Stony Hill Heritage Trail and Peak Head Walk Trail. Stony Hill Heritage Tail provides a scenic circuit with 360-degree views of Torndirrup National Park and the Albany area. The wildflowers make the heathland feel alive when in season, along with the black cockatoo population. There are informational signposts along the track that explain the thought process of the pioneers of the area. You can get to this section via another track that branches off Stony Hill Road (near the car park) as well. You may get to the starting point of the Peak Head Walk Trail via this track. The trail descends steeply via a rugged path through heath before rising up the summit of Peak Head itself. You'll need to clamber up some rocks to get to the top. Good gripping shoes are a definite requirement, and the scramble could be perilous in wet weather. Keep in mind that there may be rock climbers present on the cliffs below you. 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.
