A nice steep walk to the summit of Mt Nameless (known to the local Aboriginals as Jarndunmunha). The summit is a great place to check out the sunset and view the surrounding mines. Mountain is located right next to the town of Tom Price.

Getting there

Coming from Tom Price set course for Nameless Valley Drive. When driving down this road you will see a street on your left directing you to Mt Nameless 4wd track (you can technically drive to the top if you have a decent 4wd). Don't turn down this road if you are walking up, the next street on your left will direct you to the Mt Nameless walking track. Follow the signs until the end of the road where you will find a small carpark.

Route/Trail notes

The walk intitially begins on a 4wd track that gets progressively steeper. Very soon you will reach a staircase that leads to a small scrambing section that brings you up onto the ridge. From there keep the cliff on your left and walk up the rough trail until you intercept the 4wd trail near the top. From here you can walk up to the lookout overlooking the town, or up to the Telephone tower where you will get the best sunset views.

Comments

If you are in Tom price this is a must do! Best views of the town and all the surrounding mines, especially during the sunset! The walk is pretty exhausting, probably moreso than Mt Meharry which i did earlier in the day. The track can be a bit vague but as long as you keep the cliffs on your direct left you will make it to the top quite easily. There are two lookouts, one with a little sundial, the other just above the telephone towers (which is technically the highest point). The sign at the top says it's the highest road in WA which I found a bit confusing as Mt Meharry also has a 4wd track to the top and it is significantly higher, perhaps they built the sign before the road to Meharry was constructed?
