Started from Katoomba, first part (15km or so) was beautifully scenic throughout with an awesome suspension bridge just before the camp ground. First 10km next day were dreadfully hard with the constant incline, but once you conquer that bit you get to enjoy the rest of the hike. Jenolan Caves are definitely worthwhile exploring once the hike is over :)

on Six Foot Track

9 days ago

Done the 6 foot in a day 12 times - in all those times only ever saw 2 snakes - a black and a brown, on same day - best time 10 hrs 27 mins, worst 12 hrs 45 mins - always start Explorer’s tree, end bottom step at Caves House. Always led by one of the world’s best blokes, Barry K***. Started when 51 yrs age, last time at 61.

Amazing Track.
I walked it from otford to Bundeena in 10hours.
I took a break at Marley Lagoon and took a lot of time taking pictures of different animals and the landscape.
The way to figure 8 pool is closed, but u can make it there from burning Palms Beach in the rocks (take care of Waves and Wind). I missed the figure 8 pool

Amazing place!

Wonderful walk
We started in Leura and finished off getting the train back from Katoomba

Lots of wildlife, koalas, echidnas, goannas, kangaroos Wallaby But no snakes seen
Campsites along the way well provided for with tank water, composting toilets and picnic shelters if you want.
Day 2 from Katoomba is the tough uphill day, first 10 km, second 10 km is a little flatter

Flat walk in and slightly unmarked towards the end but was a great walk

Solid trail, with some nice swimming pools and waterfalls. Gets your heart rate up on the incline to Falconbridge! Cool waterfalls!

2nd time completing this trail - lovely loop

Easy walk with family. Great views. Even spotted some Rock Wallabies!

great three day hike 17km in you hit the up hill and it was hard. but still great hike

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

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.

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.

Well maintained and diverse track. I especially like the track between Garie beach to Otford, lush terrain and beautiful beaches.

A family friendly fire trail walk most of the way, with the chance for a little more once you reach the water. I would like to try this again on a mountain bike.

awesome hike. camped two nights and had a great time. highly recommend. didn't see any snakes though!

stunning walk ... I just wondering how can you give 1pt or 3 pt for this beautiful track ... only minus could be because you can meet a lot of pople nearby Echo Pt ... guys wake up! I prefer more hidden tracks in Blue Mts like Blackheath area but this one is perfect for first time to fall in love with this stunning mountains!! So many lookouts nice forest rock formations!! Must to do for everyone!!

Track was hard to find at times. There are some painted arrows which help. If in doubt, check the path doesn't continue on the other side of the creeks.

Nice and easy walk with some quick stops at a few small waterfalls. The track was damp and muddy from last night’s rainfall but still manageable. Very enjoyable walk to end a great day of hiking.

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.

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

This is a easy hike, perfect for kids - that ends in a beautiful stream, filled with amazing cascades. A magical little journey.

harder then what I expected but some great photo stops.

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