Stony Hill and the Walk Trail to Peak Head in the Torndirrup National Park
From Albany, make your way to Frenchman Bay Rd via Hanrahan Rd or Princess Royal Dr. Follow Frenchman Bay Rd for about 15km, passing the turn-offs to the gap and the blowholes until you reach Stony Hill Rd on the right. Turn here and head uphill, taking the left turn into the short gravel road and carpark, Just before the main carpark is the turn off to the start of the peak head hike. The almost five kilometre return walk (allow 2.5 hours) follows a sandy track that winds through thick coastal scrub and granite walls with spectacular views of the Southern Ocean.
Difficulty: Difficult (Grade 4)
