Mt Davy Summit is best accessed via the Coolgardie Track which starts opposite the Brunner mine monument, across the road from the monument is an unmarked trail heading east and up Mt Sewel. Be sure to turn uphill at the blue marker approx. 500m into the trail. From there its 800m vertical in 4km to get most of the climbing done. You will come out on a sealed access road for the radio towers. Follow this for approx. 2km past Mt Sewell to Paparoa Peak, Mt Davy is directly north from Paparoa Peak and the start of the route is marked with pink flagging tape at the hairpin in the road before the final radio tower. Follow waratahs and historic cairns all the way across the open tops to the trig on Mt Davy summit. Approximately 9km to summit and return is via the same route.
