Hike Summary

Mt Trio is a short and steep hike in the Stirling Ranges. 3.5 kilometres return, with a total ascent of 400 metres and lots of steps along the way.  Wildflowers, including the endemic mountain bells, are a feature of this walk.

Mt Trio comprises three peaks and was once known by its Aboriginal name Warrungup, meaning “three become””. The trail ascends steeply from the parking area via many steps to a saddle between the east peak and the north peak. The track then follows a more gentle slope to the highest (northern) point at 856 metres. There are excellent views from the top when the weather is clear. More than 1500 species of flowering plants exist in the Stirling Ranges

I have always been a huge fan of the outdoors but was never a huge fan of walking. My wife would often try and drag me around the streets of the suburbs for some exercise. Occasionally I would join her, but not with much enthusiasm. It wasn't until a family holiday to the Grampians in Victoria that I took a few solo hikes and discovered bush walking and hiking. I have never looked back.

As with everything I do I threw myself into hiking with enthusiasm. I tracked every trip, took photos of all my hikes, wrote trail notes and eventually joined a few hiking groups so that I could share my new found passion. After chatting with fellow hikers, and through searching for new adventures myself I realised how difficult it was to find useful information about hiking. As I had been busy recording all of my hikes I wanted to share as much info as possible in order to make things easier for others.
