Very easy and enjoyable, one of the most peaceful places I’ve been too!

A really good hike, starting next to the freshwater and after about 2km your starting to climb. A bit tricky to find the lookout but the app helped with the map. Took us 5,5 hours to complete and we also stopped for a swim in the beautiful waterfalls at the bottom. Just be aware about the leeches, there’s to many haha.

Easy walk, beautiful waterfall.

Lovely walk, but we didn't do the full loop. Short enough to see the falls and stop for a dip.
Have done this route twice.
Next time hoping to complete the loop, just to tick it off the list.

Great average hike for rookie hikers. Amazing sense of achievement when reaching the top.
Hike takes about 1.5 hours one way.
Highly recommend.

Awesome challenging Hike!!

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 :)

Amazing views!

Great short walk for both us and the kids

Super fun rock scramble with spectacular views.

Well worth it.
Fantastic camp site.
Tough walks.
Research the walks before you go.

NOT EASY

Really unexpectedly great. One of the nicer walks.

Amazing views

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

It’s been the favourite for many years now. In terms of fitness, I have seen the results come real quick while I was doing it every week.

beautiful walk spectacular views of an amazing water fall

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

It's marked as hard but as a reasonably fit person I'd mark it as a moderate hike. This has been my first hike without bringing my young kids. I added in some of the mill track loop as well as wanted a longer hike. Got to see snakes and other wildlife was beautiful.

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!

Drive only 3 hours from home to the Grampian, first walking trial to Mackenzie Falls walking down 1,9km to the bottom of waterfall. Easy. But walking back up to the top no so easy nearly killing me, but never give up. Tomorrow we will find another trial, Burrong Falls, Mount Rosea Track

We hiked from cooks mill Campground to south jawbone peak via st Bernard’s trk and jawbone creek trk. Lots of stairs and a fairly decent climb all the way, Soo good though! The scenery changes over and over. Cant wait to go back and do the rest of the trails.

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

What a beautiful walk! The terrain was harder than I thought, lots of stairs and very rocky. Right before you get to the turnaround point there is a massive decent which is rocky stairs all the way down. Which means that right after lunch you have a pretty big ascent up some rocky stairs which sucked. The rest of the walk was super nice with loads of places to stop and have a swim or a dip, and plenty of wildflowers. Signposted all the way and there were lots of other hikers on the trail so almost impossible to get lost. Took me about 4 hours in total.
