Access

Primary access is from the Wet Creek/Pass Creek Road [(A)(6.1) Page 290]. Follow this road west from Clyde. Just after the road crosses Wet Creek it climbs up a hill and meets a junction. Turn right and follow a good gravel road north to a cattle guard. Just after the cattle guard turn left/west on to a 4WD road. Follow this road for 2.8 miles to its end on Red Hill’s south ridge.

The south ridge is a broad slope with good footing. There are no obstacles and the summit is 0.8 miles and 557 feet of elevation gain from the road’s end.
