Mt Nameless, Tom Price
Mount Nameless, or Jarndrunmunhna in the local Aboriginal language, is 1128 metres above sea level. Overlooking Tom Price, the mountain summit can be accessed by 4WD and by foot along a challenging steep well-marked trail.
About the Trail
The spectacular Mt Nameless is located just 4km out of Tom Price’s town center and is best known for its challenging 4WD track to the summit. It is one of the highest 4WD tracks in Western Australia and the mountain totally dominates the skyline around the mining town.
For the more energetic, taking on the Mount Nameless hiking trail to the summit is well worth the effort. The views over surrounding hills and massive Rio Tinto iron ore mine site are spectacular. The trail is mostly steep made slightly easier by steps carved out of rock in some sections. Railings also aid the hiker in more difficult sections. From the carpark at the base of the mountain, the hike up and return can take over 3 hours. It is not the thing to do on a hot summer day. Make sure you carry water.
To get to the start of the 4WD track, head west out of the town along Mine road, and turn left (also onto Mine road). From there, take the first right onto Nameless Valley Drive, and then the first left onto a gravel track. This gravel road takes you past a mine site, and you will eventually end up at the start of the mountain. Make sure you obey the speed signs on the gravel road as there are frequent vehicles coming and going to the mine.
