About Nancy Peak, Porongurup NP
Commencing from the Porongurup carpark, the trail passes by the ‘Tree in the Rock’ before climbing to the top of the mountain’s ridge. On the way, the trail passes through different ecosystems such as karri forest and moist glades of mosses.
Emerging from the forest on the granite outcrops you will see the views to the Stirling Ranges and the Southern Ocean. Across the outcrops, the trail continues over a few peaks before descending into a pass between Nancy Peak and Devils Slide. Once on the main track between the two, it's a fairly simple karri forest ramble back to the car park.
This is one of many trails in the Porongurup area. Other trails range from the Bolganup Heritage Trail, which is an easy 600 metre circuit, to a three-hour return hike to Marmabup Rock which is recommended for experienced bushwalkers only. The Castle Rock trail takes you past the famous balancing rock and up to stand on Castle Rock.
