A challenging seven kilometre return hike to 856 metres, this peak offers a more wilderness type of experience as it is less often climbed. The track may be overgrown and the final section requires some rock scrambling.
Mt Magog is the double-headed peak next to Talyuberlup in the Stirling Ranges. Starting from a Picnic Area, the track follows a four wheel drive track for about two kilometres, with only gentle climbing. Once the track reaches the base of the peak, the climb is steep and tough. Eventually the track leads to a saddle from where it is a short and steep climb, involving some rock scrambling, to ascend to the top of Mt Magog’s south peak. The total ascent is 500 metres over 3.5 kilometres.
