Stirling Range National Park
Directions - Located on the gravel road of Stirling Range Drive, take this turnoff from Chester Pass Rd and follow it past Mount Hassell and continue until you see the signs for the Talyuberlup car park. Park on the left and the trail head is located on the opposite side of the road next to the information board.
The Hike - After scaling the toughest day hike in the Stirling Range in the morning (Toolbrunup), I retreated back to Moingup Springs campsite for a well earned lunch and an escape from the heat. Writing some thoughts down in my notebook, eating a banana & nuttino (Italian nutella) wrap and listening to some music, life wasn't feeling too bad. The family I had met the previous day were waiting for some friends to come up from Perth before heading to Bluff Knoll. I thought about joining them as it was clear skies and I hadn't visited there when the summit was clear but in the end decided to stick to the original plan and make my way to Talyuberlup Peak after lunch. I departed the campsite just before 1pm, figuring I had more than enough time to climb up to the summit in the afternoon heat (the car was still reading 28C).
