This is an extremely steep and fairly narrow track that offers great views of the Illawarra. The track can be busy at times and you may have to step off the track at times to let others past. I’ld recommend a moderate level of fitness and also urge individuals take breaks on the way up when they need too. The track is mostly shaded and getting to the start of the track is easy. This hike is well worth it due to the stunning views it greats you with at the top and at certain points on the way up!

Great steep walk to do for quick fitness burst, 35/40 mins return with moderate fitness. My five year old can do it well but is an active child. Shaded walk for most of the way. Can be a very busy track at times

The amazing views of the Illawarra and coastline gave us plenty to look at whilst catching our breath after the steep climb up. www.yearofthepicnic.com

intense walk, steep stairs all the way up. Probably too tough for young kids. not suitable if recovering from injury as it is literally stairs the whole way up with ladders included. Nice cafe at the top to have a coffee, take a breather and take in the views.

Quick but intense hike! Took us 35 minutes to get up but boy I feel the burn, it is stairs and ladders all the way up!

Great leg workout! Some nice shrub at the base. Does get crowded on the weekends, particularly around the ladders so patience is needed!
