Mt Philp is located in GlenRock Regional Park and sits to the north of the ridge of Glen Rock.
There is no distinct track to the summit so you will have to navigate your way starting from the information shed opposite the day use area.
This climb can be steep in areas and will require some scrambling approaching the summit but you are rewarded with amazing views of Glen Rock and the ridge lines of the sorrounding area.

Comments

We did this walk and continued along to red rock then Glen Rock then back to carpark. About to 14km all up with 1050m gain so it was a hard slog - but great views almost all the way. So dry around there at the moment. Saw some cows, a fox and a brush tailed rock wallaby.

Well I wouldn't say it is trackless, there are a lot of paths all leading in completely different directions, what it lacks is a correct path. Following the GPS track from Wikiloc you start at the carpark, walk through a field of knee high grass, get to a small car track (get your hopes up that there is going to be a nice track) then you have to walk up through more knee high grass and bushes filled with spiders. Eventually you get to the ridge and you can follow that up and it gets a bit easier. Very steep pretty much the whole way, reminded me a bit of Mt Barney just in how draining it is. Took me 90 minutes up and 90 minutes down because you have to be so careful descending. Very nice view from the top, surprised they haven't capitalised on it by making an actual track.
