Description

Located in the Stirling Range National Park, Bluff Knoll at 1,098 m above sea level is the highest peak in the South West.

Due to its height and proximity to the south coast, the climate in the range differs from that of the surrounding district. As a result of this unique topography and climate, over 1,000 species of wildflowers and flowering plants thrive within the park including Mountain Bells and the Queen of Sheba Orchid. Information shelters in the park provide information about the plant and animal life in the area and guide you to sites of interest.

The Bluff Knoll run starts at a large trailhead interpretive shelter and the path from there is very easy to follow. The weather can often surprise you: no matter how hot you may feel in the car park before beginning the climb, take a sweater with you. Mountain mists, wind chill and rain can occur on the mountains at any time and there are even snowfalls most winters on the peaks.

There are also opportunities for overnight runs given favorable weather and conditions. Discuss options and check current trail conditions with a Department of Parks and Wildlife Ranger (phone 08 9827 9230 or 08 9827 9278) whose office is at Park Headquarters (near Moingup Springs by the park campsite off Chester Pass Road). Runners must register.
