Great trail. Diversity with hilltop, river bank and bush views with a couple rainforest parts tucked in. It took us a pretty solid day to do the 24ish km. We pretty much followed this hike exactly and diverged from the Great North path to get to the train station. That section is a bit less travelled and I suspect we didn't find the best way.
Otherwise a couple notes : the first half has some water bubblers, cafes etc. the second half was all bush with no amenities. Right towards the end you walk a sewage pipe, it's underground but with air vents along the way which was a bit less pleasant. The Whitefire Grill was a good (but fancier than expected) lunch stop. Good call as it was the last food we saw.

great walk considering you are still in a built up area you can hear distant traffic most of the way thru

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

Walked a few k’s along this track in early August 2018 - within a few hundred meters from leaving lane cove river park at lady game drive you could be anywhere yet so close to sydney - it’s a great walk - although the wattle have been fooled into flowering early this year with all the dry warm weather .

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.

Beautiful all the way along and some challenging segments to make it a great experience!

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

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

Was an easy one!! You can pretty much finish all the 3 trails in one go.
Nice spots to chillax and enjoy with friends and family.

More like 13k but very lovely.
Take shoes with good grip.

Love this track! so much different scenery.

This was a great track but keep your eyes peeled for the markers as some of the track is a little overgrown. There's lots of wildlife to see including a big goanna, kangaroos, lots of water dragons and some very eager birds at the cafe

Good walk. Mostly shady. Nice water features at some points. Last bit to Hornsby station is a stair master workout so be ready.

For a hiker from the US, Lane Cove Loop was breath taking. First, the sounds are amazing. Birds, frogs, and other creatures greet you and serenade you throughought the trail. We saw a wallaby, lots of cockatoos, iguanas, lizards, and a snake. I couldn't identify the type of snake, and it dissapeared in the bush before I could get a picture. It was brown, with a light stripe along both sides. The aprox 8-mile trail is shady, well marked, and on the easy side of moderate. Most of it is flat, with occasional boulders and brief/mild climbs. You'll find a couple campgrounds and restrooms along the way.

Very popular route for walkers, runners and cyclists, with well maintained concrete footpaths. Not an urban oasis per se - you would never forget you are in the city - but a nice respite from the hustle and a great little coffee place at one point in the walk.

Competed this walk in sections. It’s a nice walk.
