Mt Magog is the double-headed peak next to Talyuberlup in the Stirling Ranges. Starting from a picnic area, the track follows a four wheel drive track for about two kilometres, with only gentle climbing. Once the track reaches the base of the peak, the climb is steep and tough. Eventually the track leads to a saddle from where it is a short and steep climb, involving some rock scrambling, to ascend to the top of Mt Magog's south peak. The total ascent is 500 metres over 3.5 kilometres.

Great introduction to scrambling! The first 3/4 was a normal bush walk and the final 1/4 was easy scrambling (like high stairs with obvious hand holds), and then the final 400m is a steeper and more difficult scramble if you want it. Loved the views loved he adventure.

Grt hike, starts easy and then goes up n up n up. Some slashing done on vegetation to highlite the trail. Top 200 m is wonderful rock hopping territory. View is incredible. Retracing ur steps off the top is heart stopping. Absolutely love Magog and The Stirlings
