Starting near the Taipan Wall Carpark on Mount Zero Road, Laharum, Grampians National Park, this walk leads to the top of Mount Stapylton and back via the Mount Stapylton Loop Walk. Perfect for getting the heart pumping, this adventurous hike goes through open forest and interesting rock formations, all the way to the summit of Mount Stapylton. The steep trek is tough, but the views from the top are spectacular. Be prepared for rock hopping and scrambling at the end. This hike is safer when the weather is sunny, because when it rains, the rocks can become very slippery and dangerous. 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.
Warning This journey requires significant bushwalking experience, specialised equipment and navigation skills. Please ensure you and your group well prepared and equiped for this journey.
