4 MH - Day Walk
Tootie Creek, Colo River
The walk starts at the car park at the beginning of the T3 track, approx. 5 km north of Mountain Lagoon (map attached). We follow a ridge W then NW for a couple of km, then another ridge NE down to Tootie Creek. This is off track but both ridges are reasonably open. There is a little scrambling down to the creek and a tape will be used if necessary. There is an excellent swimming pool where we join the creek. We then follow the creek down towards the Colo River. The first half is open with rock platforms but the vegetation gets thicker as we approach the Colo. We join the Colo at the bottom of the T3 track, and can cool off again in the river if the weather is hot. Then it is a straightforward walk up the T3 track back to the cars.The ridges and creek are excellent, and the going is not too hard. Nevertheless , estimated time is 9 hrs. I would grade this walk as the hard side of 4, but not enough to make grade 5.

4 MH - Day Walk
Traverse of the Ridges of Dunn
The Ridges of Dunn are a series of parallel rocky ridges to the SW (approx. 2 km) of Wollangambe Crater. They show up particularly well in the Google Earth view (attached file).We start along the track to Wollangambe Crater and cut east at the first creek and then slightly south down to another creek which feeds into Wollangambe Creek. We cross this creek and head up the central ridge of Dunn, which is a playground of pagodas, and have a look at the parallel ridges to the E and W. Then we head back along a ridge to the W then S which leads to the heavy vehicle Inspection station at Bell. This is reasonably open and the last half is lightly tracked.The central part of the walk is off track but open. The pagoda ridges offer scrambling, or detours around the scrambling, depending on how you feel. The open nature of the ridges makes for excellent views. The walk will last approx. 6 hrs and I am grading it as 4 but it is on the easy side of that.

4 MHX - Day Walk
Mount Townsend
This walk explores a small section of the Southern end of the Colo Wilderness. It starts near Upper Colo, about 40 minutes drive from Richmond and 90 minutes drive from Blackheath. Lisa and I can provide transport from Richmond railway station. Car sharing from the upper blue mountains may be possible. From the start of Bob Turner's track we will head South and then West to Mount Townsend. The aim is to find a way down one of the ridges to the North of Mount Townsend and meet up with Bob Turner's track. If there's time we could head down to the Colo River before returning along Bob Turner's track to the cars. Mostly off-track walking, possibly with some scrambling but nothing exposed or scary. The middle section (North from Mount Townsend to Bob Turner's track) will be exploratory.
