    Steve Novick reviewed Royal National Park Coastal Trail: Otford to Shelly Beach

    6 months ago

    First off this is definitely doable in one day despite so many things I read that made it seem extremely difficult. Much of the trail is level and even on man made walkways in many spots. One if the most difficult portions was the detour to the Figure 8 pools, which for my money can be skipped.

    What I will say is that if you start in Bundeena like I did because I was worried about catching the last ferry, be aware that the final 3-4 miles are all uphill. It's not terribly steep and there are steps for most of the way but after 13 miles it's tough enough. Also it's good to know that there's no ticket machine at the Otford station so make sure you have a full card or a ticket in advance.

    Otherwise this is an incredible experience with some of the most beautiful coastlines and beaches you can ever hope to see. And it's not crowded in the slightest so at times you'll feel that you have it all to yourself.

    Steve Novick reviewed Ben Lommond Track

    Amazing views that keep getting better and better as you go! Definitely challenging but more than worth it. Also my advice is to skip the Tiki Trail and take the gondola. I didn't feel the Tiki added anything worthwhile to the hike, plus you'll probably wind up taking the gondola back down either way.

    The name of the track is misspelled on here. it's Ben Lomond.
