It's a 2 lane sealed road. A bit windy and hilly. We towed a van through there with no problems. If your rig is within limits you should have no problems even with a large van.

Neville,
The Putty road is a good run but will be slow with a van, another alternative if traveling from Temora would be the Bylong Valley. Anythings got to be better than Pennant Hills Rd as it's pretty much a car park 24 x 7!

I towed Avan thru there last year with no problems. Few hills and winding road. Call into the Grey Gum Café...plenty of room for overnight with big firepits.

Towed a 21ft Lotus Trooper down the Putty 6 weeks ago piece of cake. Not like it was the first time in 69. Some interesting places to stop including the closed servo.

I personally don't like the Putty road. Not because you can't easily tow along it, but for the endless 40k/ph sharp corners. OK if you have plenty of time, but I always stick to the main hwy if travelling south from the nth coast.
Pennant Hills rd is only very busy during peak times, so avoid it then and no probs at all.

As a local that uses Pennant Hills Road daily I must say you are right, avoid in peak times, problem is these days that is about 20 hours a day!

Ha ha, I know what you mean, but I usually don't have a problem with it the times I go south camping from the central coast.....which is approx 3pm of a friday, just before peak time.
I find the most annoying bit is that short bit from the M2 to the M7.......then the stupid 100 k/ph limit on the M7, which is the best piece of freeway in Sydney ?
