Why is the Stirling Ridge Walk not on here?? Bluff Knoll forms part of it... and it is one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done

Had a lot of fun hiking. The scenery is beautiful. We did the track in reverse too!

A short paved walk from the car park to the lookout. Fantastic views!

I did this hike in summer toward the end of January but I would recommend to do it at a cooler time of the year as there is not many shaded section. The path is very flat however it is very sandy and can be hard to walk on. There are several sections of 4 wheel drive tracks that we follow as part of this trail which could make some sections of the trail a bit boring.
There are bush toilets, picnic tables and a hut for overnight sleepers half way through which is quite handy for a lunch break.

I found it hard to find the trail at the start but once I passed Crystal cave it was very well marked and easy to follow.

Moderate trail good for family, not suitable for seniors.
Enjoy the beautiful views on Perth Hills and Perth plains. Dont miss the walk up to falls bottom. Pause and enjoy the breeze overseeing Perth suburbs and city.

Well signed posted and great views. Only complaint is that it doesn’t open till 8am which is too late to start walking to beat the heat. I walked this path anticlockwise and so glad I did.

Lovely trail! Varying terrain from moderately technical to lovely flat 4WD tracks. The ranger tells us that we should go there again in spring when there has been some rain to fill the creeks and to see the wildflowers.

A beautiful location and the trail is really well marked.

Great short climb. Toolbrunup towers over you nearby. Quite steep and a solid slog. Car park entry is blind.

Best generally accessible peak in the park. Incredible views. Harder than Bluff Knoll ascent. Not for faint hearted either.

Good trail. Had some challenging parts. Really long rocky hill. Now I’m well trained for other hills like this one.

Rated as moderate, however some sections hard. I think it would be about 3km of soft sand at the end of the track followed by a steep rocky climb to the top. Worth every step, the scenery & geology was amazing. Bird life good too, saw black swans, pelicans, rainbow bee-eaters, grebes & little robins. Start the walk at first light as it gets very hot. A great walk

Stunning day and the wildflowers were in full bloom. Tough first half with the incline but the second half was easy peasy.

Great run technical at times

Poor signage

This is a great variation on the actual Yaberoo Budgera Trail. The actual walk starts/finishes at Lake Joondalup and goes all the way into Yanchep National Park. I will walk it and upload here soon.

beautiful scenery and not very hard

did this a few years ago and would definitely recommend. at the time i was quite unathletic and found climbing down the steep bits a slight struggle, but it turned out great

a bit of a workout, but a manageable, fun hike! don't go the 'alternate' route or path you may see at the peak, this leads to the middle of nowhere. literally

walk this every weekend, beautiful in winter

Initally the goat walk trail is a steep incline, but after that the trails becomes easy to walk.
Good walk for kids and dogs

An easy walk for the most part, with a couple of short rocky sections. On our visit the harbour side beach was covered in seaweed, not the most pleasant walking surface.
According to Motion X we walked 4.77 km, climbed 150 m.
By the way, it's nowhere near Middleton Beach; 24 km by Road, according to Google Maps.

Good steep climb up and easy walk back down, nice water fall to walk up to also.

Easy going except for the last bit up a steep rock face. Deviating to the left, rather than taking the "obvious" direct route, reveals a slightly less steep alternative.
There has recently been a fire in the area. One needs to to search for trail markers.
Great views; a most enjoyable short walk.

Quite a steep track at the beginning
Not sure you could walk this with kids

Easy great walk

Nice walk. Great views. Just not propper parking there. Just pull up at the side of the road.
