The Stirling Ridge Walk. Ellen Peak from Bluff Knoll Rated one of Australia’s most challenging wilderness hikes.

Stirling Ridge Walk 2

The Stirling Ridge Walk covers the 15.5 km between Bluff Knoll and Ellen Peak. Recommended for experienced, well prepared, fit and agile hikers due to it’s rugged nature, changeable weather conditions and lack of water sources. Hikers can start the walk from either end.

This is the only hike in WA with alpine weather conditions. It involves narrow ledges, very steep ascents and descents and much scrambling over jagged rocks and through sharp bush.

Violent weather change including very strong gusty wind, hail, whiteout, sleet or snow can occur with little notice. It usually involves a two night bivouac, which may be in these conditions, so walkers must be appropriately equipped. The trail is easy to lose, and a compass course may be necessary.

This trail should only be undertaken by those, fit, well prepared and well recorded in the register/log book, and others notified.

Ellen Peak

Ellen Peak

Altitude: 1012m    Length of track: 22kms return    Hiking time: 7-8 hours    Difficulty: Extreme
A 900 metre climb at the eastern end of the Stirling Range Ridge Walk. Apart from the first five kilometres of firebreak, the track is informal and unmarked and easy to lose. A compass traverse may be necessary. Very strong gusty winds and/or white out conditions sometimes occur at short notice. 

Abbey Track

Located 9.96 kms from Formby South Rd and linking Salt River Road with Stirling Range Drive, Abbey track is approximately 10 kms long. Walkers park a second car at the end of the track, and on completion return to pick up their first vehicle.
