From Denmark, a 23km scenic drive along Scotsdale and Mt Lindesay Roads takes you to the Mt Lindesay trailhead and picnic area.  The walk trail leads you down to the Denmark River and across a bridge.  After this, the track is steep for 500 metres.  It is then an easy grade walk for about 2.5km, passing through jarrah and mallee scrub before arriving at a granite outcrop.  Tall white trail markers guide you over the rocks.  Once at the summit, enjoy the panoramic views over farmland, the coast and the Walpole Wilderness.

This granite mondanock is the centerpiece of the Mount Lindesay National Park, home to threatened ecological communities. so please leave your pets at home.

Picnic tables and toilets are provided for ‘pit stops’ before or after your hike!

One of my favourites in the region, Mt Lindesay is a challenging hike with epic views and Wildflower season goes off.

We did this on a hot day in March. So we struggled a bit with the heat going up. There's a lot of shade though so wasn't too bad. I didn't tackle the last bit of granite rocks at the top but my husband did. Amazing views. Well maintained trail. Loved it.

Climbed it mid Jan on a 22 degree day. Really well marked on the way up but keep a look out for rock piles on the way down to guide u over the rocky sections. This would be mind blowing in wildflower season and incredible views up the top. Definitely take a jacket for the summit. We did it in 4 hours with a decent lunch break up the top and took heaps of photos/videos on the way.

We did this trail on Easter Sunday. We found it to be well sign posted. Had fun climbing over the rocks closer to the top (although I can imagine if wet this wouldn't be so fun). Enjoyed the fantastic panoramic views from the top.
