day 1 tough. day 2 tougher. day 3 nice :)
watch out for snakes. kind of hard when they look like sticks... I suggest to set off at dawn on day 3 and get to jenolan by 10 so you can go on a cave tour, walk a track without ur pack or just sit at the cafe and try and drink them out of stock!

another tip is the bus arrives at 12pm "blue mountains coaches (or buses" if you catch the bus driver, he will let you to drop off your pack so you can explore more. bus leaves around 3.30. Bus driver is John and is a champ

Amazing views

Scenic view

Great hike with spectacular panoramic views. This moderate hike climbs at a even rate through the beautiful wooded rain forest all the way to the top. The last +100m you will encounter a challenging steep chain climb which is awesome, making the summit even more rewarding.

Beautiful walk, with well maintained tracks and amazing views of the water. The only thing that I didn’t like is that there are no free water on the trail, you can buy some water at the little shop at Garie beach but bring cash. Otherwise, make sure to bring plenty of water especially on a hot summer day as there are not enough shade. The camp at North Era is such a great spot for camping, close to beach. But I did this walk in 9 hrs with lots of break and an hour swim at the beach. I reckon this track can be done in 7 hrs with just short breaks.

Hard to find as have to climb over a fence. Had to follow other hikers to find our way. Beautiful walk to a stunning waterfall!

For those of you trail running there's not alot of open unimpeded open country on this well marked trail. There is a 2km open stretch at about 3.5km. Otherwise expect lots of root jumping and rock hopping. Its just over 14km if you run to the link track (top of the stairs at the Berowa end) and back.

Loved everything about it. Must Go

Great trail. Diversity with hilltop, river bank and bush views with a couple rainforest parts tucked in. It took us a pretty solid day to do the 24ish km. We pretty much followed this hike exactly and diverged from the Great North path to get to the train station. That section is a bit less travelled and I suspect we didn't find the best way.
Otherwise a couple notes : the first half has some water bubblers, cafes etc. the second half was all bush with no amenities. Right towards the end you walk a sewage pipe, it's underground but with air vents along the way which was a bit less pleasant. The Whitefire Grill was a good (but fancier than expected) lunch stop. Good call as it was the last food we saw.

It’s a great easy track down a fire trail, possibly a little steep on the way back up. About 1.5km but the dry spell has taken its toll and there not much of a pool at the moment

Easy hike through beautiful bush to magnificent falls.

Starting at the sphinx, the steep decline is a challenging ascent, making sure not to step on the wrong stone or branch. The steps take you down to a breathtaking view of the river, where the path leads you to the marine. The path is covered with small stones, so beware the ankles.

The second part of the track is the fire trail, which is a bit less spectacular, but is a great way to recover after the steep climb.

Had tons of fun while doing this run, will do it again!

Beautiful rainforest down to river. Climbing required in some sections. Found a set of waterfalls about 100m down stream at the river. Make sure your phones charged you'll need your GPS on the way back.

Nice easy hike

So beautiful view! We love it!

Excellent walk with great sunrise photo opportunities.
Will definitely do it again

Fabulous walk, a short hike to see Waratahs and nature at its best


parking is easy to find. first thing to do is go on paved road to robertson lookout. from there back towards picnic table, go into this area and make a left on the trail. it'll lead down towards the loop. many trails coming off the loop so best keep this app on with map showing your location. i got a tad lost off trail for 20 minutes. but mostly well marked, technical and fun.

Great walk but think from Spit to Manly is the way to go. You can have a beer at the Manly end.

Great views, bit hard to find the route sometimes, semi challenging inclines. Would recommend going here!

great experience... two times till now and still love to go for this coastal walk

really nice little hike, river crossings, views, brumbys. beautiful.

Love woody to glenbrook
