Mountains of Sydney - Bonfire Hill
The slightly lower twin sister to Mount Bindo just to the south. Bonfire Hill is one of the highest mountains near Sydney. It can snow during cold snaps.
Drive south along Jenolan Caves Road. At Hampton, turn north and follow Hampton Road for around 9km. Turn left onto Norman Lee Road. After 400m, turn right onto Old Flats Road. This road is quite rough, but can be driven in a 2WD car. When you enter the State Forest, turn left and follow the road around the edge of the State Forest for about 2km. The walk starts at a junction where the road turns sharply north.
Directions to the summit
1. Follow the firetrail up the hill to the west. After a steep initial climb it levels out and follows a ridge line, with good views of Bonfire Hill to the south.
2. After about 3km, turn south and descend to Off Flats Creek. Continue up the hill on the other side.
3. Eventually you reach a four way intersection. Take the middle fire trail, straight up the mountain.
4. The summit is fairly open, with views to the west and south. The best view I found was in an open area to the west of the trail, 100m south of the summit.
