trail running
5 hours ago

Just did part of it today. Trail running is good. Youll get some pavement. First tip! Ask for directions or download the trail and follow. Second tip. When at the first sandy beach you can run all the way towards the end near the rock cliffs. You want to find a trail that to the right going up to the houses. The one i found had a blue rope you could use to assist you up. Once on top you will be on a flat surface between the cliffs and houses for beautiful views. I turned around after about 3 miles 5k due to high winds and i forgot a light jacket or wind breaker. Awesome views! Will finish next time.

GPS is a must. Trails are pretty rocky at times and a bit sandy. Some good scenary and wildlife along the way.

classic track!!!

Great track, scenic and very relaxing. Loose rocks, so wear proper shoes. Minimal signs, be prepared to get lost, part of the adventure.

One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever walked!

A great walk along the cliff tops. You are very exposed though and the weather can change rapidly.. fantastic views!

Would have liked to have seen this at dawn as others have said but we didn't have the luxury of time on our side. Still, it's a decent hike up and views are nice.

As the day progresses the haze gets worse and hence why dawn would be best.

The last stretch may be a little challenging for some as you’re scrambling over rock at steep height. There are chains to aid. We saw are varied amount of people.

Recommend hiking poles on the way down as it pounds the knees for those who don’t have great knees anymore.

on Diamond Head Loop

This trail is just the most gorgeous place! I did it by myself (I was 15 at the time... possibly 14). At first I thought it was a quick walk but I was gone for hours! It doesn’t take that long to walk but I take millions of photos and I’m constantly stopping to look at trees, animals and the view! The view is breath taking! Strongly recommend!

A great hike that should be stretched over to 2 days, if not 3. The mountain climb is challenging yet rewarding. We camped by the river after descending from the mountain which was peaceful and beautiful. Don’t under estimate the second half of the walk though! There are multiple steep hills to hike up and the second day is as physically demanding as the first!

diamond head is now my favorite beach in the world. This walk is just lovely

Great track especially for a solo trecker. Easily done over two days but more enjoyable over three.

Beautiful walk, started in Bundeena and made our way to Otford so there was no pressure to catch the last ferry back.

The best section is at the beginning of the coast walk near Bundeena Wharf.

A very easy, short walk that ends in a view across a body of water. Recommend this one if you’re short on time but still want to see a few scenic things ☺️

Beautiful track! Not too difficult and I recommend going off the path here and there; once to go towards the cliff edge where you’ll see nothing but ocean ahead of you, and another to get on top of Eaglehead Rock itself. Be careful as it gets a little windy!

It was an amazing mini hike with beautiful weather and it was so peaceful. Good for all ages of people within the Paramatta suburb vicinity.

1hr 50 return hike, minus time spent checking out the unreal views at the top. Under traditional culture, Wollumbin is considered a sacred men's site and people are discouraged from climbing the mountain, with a sign to that effect at the base of the hike. The aboriginal community feels a great deal of responsibility to what happens to people who get injured on those sites without the guidance of an aboriginal person or aboriginal community members.

Great part of Sydney , nice and flat great ride for all levels .

decent trail for beginners.some parts can be soggy & muddy,hence slippery. steep steps at places so needs good concentration.

Loved this walk. It is a surprisingly decent bush walk in the middle of suburbia.

Absolute must if visiting Sydney. The views across the cliffs and ocean are stunning. Nothing like this will make you feel more at home in Australia.

Hard, but rewarding hike of Australian mountainous bush. Take lots of water!

Great walk for children. The lake circuit is rocky with few steps so wear appropriate shoes.

Absolutely loved this hike. My boyfriend and I completed it in 3h10m with around 15-20m at the top! It took us 1.5 hours to get to the summit. I am not outrageously fit so it was definitely challenging but so rewarding once you make it past the rock scramble! Beautiful views of both NSW and QLD.
I would of course recommend it and be sure to take a jumper for the top as it’s kind of chilly.

Nice walk. Used to be more challenging and fun before they put all the stone and wooden steps. Still a pretty and enjoyable walk and it’s a nice meander along the canyon floor.

Ok just hugs the freeway after about one hour nothing special

Marvellous view!
