Mountains of Sydney - Parr South
A very steep mountain on the banks of the wild Colo River. This is a difficult walk in a remote wilderness area.
From the Colo River bridge, drive north along Putty Road for 15km. Just after the petrol station at Colo Heights, turn left onto Bob Turners Trail. Follow this dirt road for 2.5km where you reach a small parking area with National Parks signage.
Directions to the summit
1. Follow Bob Turners Track to the Colo River.
2. Walk / scramble along the north bank of the river. Although this section is only 1.3km in length, it is very tough going and don't expect to go much faster than 1 km/h.
3. You reach a deep gully. The climb to the summit begins here. Climb the ridge line to the west. You start at almost sea level so there is 500 metres of climbing to reach the summit. The climb is very steep for most of the way except for a flatter section half way up.
4. Towards the summit there is a distinct rocky section. The top of the rocks gives a great view over to the east.
5. The summit is wooded but there are good views to the west.
