Central Blue Mountains (Dunphy)
Mt Wilson 8930-1N
Mt Bell is a mountain midway between Mt Tomah and the Bald Hills.
Bells Line of Road traverses around the western and northern sides of Mt Bell.
George Caley referred to Mt Bell as Table Hill on his 1804 expedition to Mt Banks. Caley described the summit and western slopes as 'very brushy and very bad travelling'.
Nothing much has changed since. In places the vegetation on the summit is very dense, in others reasonably open.
There are huge tree ferns growing on the top of Mt Bell. Very unusual!
There is a Hand Stencil on a rock wall on the slopes.
Mt Bell - tough going but with fascinating vegetation, a hand stencil and some great views.
