Wonderful walk. Start at Elysian Rock Lookout for sunrise.

I started from explorer tree and to be honest, except for the first day, it was a pretty boring hike. I don't see the pleasure in hiking on a durt track for 4wd for 20km.

Campsites are nice but for the second and last night, it was not possible to open the tap on the big green tank so, only option was to get water at the toilets.

I wouldn't recommend this hike

great for a got day and with young kids

love love love

probably best to go on a day when it's been raining a lot, the day I went it had been raining but not much water was running from the fall
still good though..

Bad signposting of the trails that we got lost twice. The trails are wide but not really well prepared with a lot of leafs and sticks on it.
Unfortunately, the rivers were dry that it wasn’t possible to see a waterfall. Disappointed hike for us..

Awesome views and gorge dipping with Leah

Great track, very casual and easy with all the new boardwalk installed. Added on an extension around Jibbon Head to the north on the first day heading North to South. Was able to filter water from some of the larger creeks with a purifying system with no issues.

Really loved this walk. Turned around at Junction Falls (one third of the way) since we had young kids and it was steeper and harder than we thought. I reckon this should be rated as "medium", not "easy". But highly worth it!

Great walk - some trail was a little hard to follow around the landslide area between Furber Steps and the Golden Stairs but we figured it out. The climb up Mt Solitary was steep and a climb rather than a walk in many areas but its well worn and easy enough.

Great walk, from Otford Station to bundeena... Caught ferry to Cronulla. All up took around 8hrs... Amazing scenery

A sealed path takes you through towering rainforest with epiphytics ferns such as Stag and bird nest ferns, there are many birds including the Superb Lyrebird. Take the right hand fork to Crystal Falls as it’s shorter than going left, if you want to do the entire 6.6km loop then it’s less of a climb if you go right. There are two waterfalls on this walk that are both worth seeing. The trail is not overly suitable for young children due to the distance, heat and humidity especially in summer.....Happy trails....!!!

Beautiful way with 2 waterfalls easy for kids 6,5km around 2h

Started at Govetts Leap, added the Grand Canyon Trail plus cliff top. Took 5hrs 10mins total incl breaks and photos . It was 15 degrees which is a bit colder than usual for summer but it was perfect for the walk. Some beautiful sights along the river and stunning waterfalls at the start and towards the end. Tough on the legs getting back out of the gully. Saw no one for the first 3.5 hours.

Great views. The campsite at North Era isnt the best due to the lack of water.

The section from Alum Creek to Black Range is quite boring.

Hiked this with five mates in 6hrs with small stops along the way with a 0630 start at Otford. Varying elevations between Otford and Watamolla.A nice walk but if you are going to do it in one day then take your time and don’t rush,it is a demanding walk.We had one member of the team have to be picked up urgently from Bundeena due to fatigue and low sugar.

Some very incredible views, well worth the walk

any parking area nearby???

A short and beautiful track that is easy to navigate. Plenty of visitors and a bbq area at the track head.
Be sure to check out the Upper Cascades which has disabled access, the main or lower Cascades are not wheelchair accessible.

Take a trip below the Cascades to view Bridal Veil Falls and Weeping Rock.

Nice and easy walk to introduce you to the Blue Mountains. Enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Several small but tranquil waterfalls with lots of birds to provide a soundtrack.
Some leeches after heavy rain and the occasional Snake so good shoes are a must!

Dorrigo NP is an beautiful place. this is a really pretty walk through fairly epic rainforest. track is sealed about 99% of the way which makes it feel like a stroll throught botanic gardens rather than an actual hike. lovely birds and a boardwalk into treetops in a couple of spots. two bridges over waterfalls... grateful not to have to scramble over the rocks:) a lovely, lovely way to spend a couple of hours.

Will do it again
Excellent walk

Très jolie balade en partant de « Echo Point », rencontre de plusieurs cacatoès à huppe jaune mais c’est loin d’être une randonnée « Easy » jusqu’à la cascade.

La balade est d’une durée d’au moins 2 heures minimum avec un climat tropical.

My favourite spot in the local area

Amazing place to visit

really enjoyed this trail, though it was alot of up hill.

Great walk. Can be challenging under foot. Lots of narrow stairs

Well worth the effort. We went down the harder track (starts just near the main lookout) without knowing there was an easier one which we fortunately came up on. Was a difficult decent but the family including my 3yo made it down fine. The easier path which we found on the way back was a very easy walk. Beautiful waterfall. Water was freezing but well worth a dip!
