A great hike in the Blue Mountains! We climbed the ruined castle and mount solitary, both had with awesome views. There's a bit of scrambling to get to the top of Mount Solitary, which was fun. There's lots of good camping on the way to mount solitary or on top.

This is my go to walk/hike on weekends if I don’t have any other walk to do as it’s close by :)

Easy ride on dedicated cycle paths

hike isn't anything special until the end, one of the best views of Sydney Harbour

You get what you pay for. Nice pleasant walk, open cascades area to explore at the bottom. Not for swimming.

Very nice view. You can enjoy the sun and the beach in the same time.

Not too far from city. You can go there by public transportation.

We did this track with our 6 year old and he was happy with the walk and the beautiful views. Coming down steep slope was something he didn't like much. Carry water with you as there is no cafe or drinking water at top.
The views are beautiful it and its kid friendly to walk.

It was lovely to walk this trail though I ended up by Resolute beach. Going down rewards you with beautiful secluded beach but its the coming back up thats all the fun. There are no toilets or cafe or water down there so carry your food and water. We took a picnic and it was a delight to sit at the beach after a lovely swim n eat n drink in the shade of the trees on s nice sunny day.

i started from Mount Kuring Gai track to Berowra station. it has beaten path so hassle for the route. please make sure that carry water otherwise you will be in trouble in the middle of the track. overall experience is awesome.

I started at Spit bridge and hiked along the coast line to Manly. The first three kilometres is where you get the most scenic views. You have many opportunities for a dip along the beaches with clean and inviting waters.
If you decide to go on a sunny day (I did on the 1st of April), you would definitely enjoy it. Make sure to carry water and wear comfortable clothing (Shorts and T-shirt). Mid way the trail goes through bush and aboriginal land. About 4 kms into the walk it gets pretty much downhill and easy.
Lots of opportunities for some great landscape photography.

First time at the top of Australia fantastic !

Awesome trek. Very hard!!!

Nice scenery in one part, boring walk on the second half. Not hard at all, even for beginners or casual hikers. Worth spending few hours though, especially if a side trip to figure eight pool is included.

Such a beautiful hike! Will definitely do it again. Coming up out of the rainforest at the end was tough.. So many stairs but we'll worth it. We were pretty proud of ourselves afterwards :)

Decent trail with moderate difficulty. Did it in 2.5 hours with just a few stops and about 15 mins at the top. Saw a 6’ snake on way down. Great workout and lovely scenery.

Love this track! so much different scenery.

Great track clearly marked and easy to follow. Tough set of stairs out of Bobbin Head!

Great walk. Nice scenery. Lots of ascents and descents though.

Loved this hike. I’ve hiked a lot and this trail is moderately hard. The rock scramble is by far the coolest part of the hike. It’s not technical but I recommend taking your time and go at a pace comfortable for you.

The hike took us about 5 hours with multiple stops. We could have done it in about 3.5-4 hours if we didn’t stop as much. Not a lot of views until you’re almost to the top.

Only negative: be aware of poisonous creatures along the way. Aka: don’t touch anything. We did see a small black red bellied snake on the ride of the trail and stayed far away from it. Highly poisonous.

Plan to hike it on a clear day so you get 360 degree views. We only had one day in our schedules for it and it was quite cloudy. We did wait for the clouds to break and were able to see all the way to Byron Bay.

If you’re using a GPS, the address for the hike is about 3-4 miles short. You will need to continue up the winding road to where it dead ends to start the hike.

Epic hike. I’d recommend adding it to your travel plans if you’re in the area.

Great hike, interesting change from up high to down in the rain forest. Not sure why but Strava says this was almost 2km longer and 145 m more elevation gain than All Trails says. Elevation gain isn’t always accurate but distance usually is so beware it’s a good 30-35% longer than then 5.5km listed here.

great hike with stunning views of the top of Mt Solitary however the loop is longer than the quoted 31 kms we started our hike at Scenic world and had already racked up 35kms by the time we finished at the top of the giant stairway at echo point so would've been at least another couple of kms it took us 12 hours total time so unless you really like a challenge I'd recommend spreading this one over 2 days

Last bit is less spectacular but a good hike otherwise

Great hike. Can be challenging coming up out of the canyon for those not used to it, but it’s worth it. Grand Canyon shows a very different side of the area once all the lookouts start to look the same.

Not for everyone. There are multiple compulsory wades up to thighs. You will get wet feet and shorts. Very slippery and a lot of scrambling over rocks and logs. Need good route finding ability.

This was a great track but keep your eyes peeled for the markers as some of the track is a little overgrown. There's lots of wildlife to see including a big goanna, kangaroos, lots of water dragons and some very eager birds at the cafe
