Explore the most popular birding trails in Blue Mountains National Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Great walk offering scenic views and varied landscapes including the mountains, bush inland and canyon rock formations in the rainforest. Should plan for 4-5 h to do the hike at a comfortable pace including breaks for photos and lunch. Would definitely recommend this hike for a day trip activity in the Blue Mountains.

Fabulous walk, a short hike to see Waratahs and nature at its best

classic track!!!

One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever walked!

A great hike that should be stretched over to 2 days, if not 3. The mountain climb is challenging yet rewarding. We camped by the river after descending from the mountain which was peaceful and beautiful. Don’t under estimate the second half of the walk though! There are multiple steep hills to hike up and the second day is as physically demanding as the first!

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

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

Nice walk. Used to be more challenging and fun before they put all the stone and wooden steps. Still a pretty and enjoyable walk and it’s a nice meander along the canyon floor.

Gorgeous walk where my gf and saw all sorts of wildlife from lyre birds to lizards, a snake, wallabys and more! Beautiful change in forest from bush at the top to rainforest down low by the creeks.

Extremely exhausting trail.

Prefer a more natural walk without all the stone steps

Very beautiful trail

Short track but stunning view plus nice spots for picnic or lunch(cave)
Good start for hiking from Wentworth Falls to Katomba .

nice track! the stairs were killer though

It was really fun and great experience. One of the epic moment in my life.

Gorgeous trail, every step of the way! Those stairs will take it out of you though!

Amazing walk but a lot of steep stairs.

cool canyons and a really well maintained track, took us bang on 2hrs

Easy walk, very picturesque. You’re able to go off the path to multiple lookouts along the way. We were able to link this walk up with the over cliff and conservation hut.

Incredible mix of history, views, waterfalls, rainforest and canyons. Enjoyed this walk so much and every step up an down was worth it!

Amazing walk! Lots of things to see. Caves, little pools and much more! There's a lot of steps but it's well worth it! If you come to the Blue Mountains, you must do this walk!

One of the more beautiful walks around that is for sure. The rainforest sections were breathtaking. Definitely a lot of stairs so heads up. Will be doing it again.

Such a beautiful hike! Will definitely do it again. Coming up out of the rainforest at the end was tough.. So many stairs but we'll worth it. We were pretty proud of ourselves afterwards :)

Great hike, interesting change from up high to down in the rain forest. Not sure why but Strava says this was almost 2km longer and 145 m more elevation gain than All Trails says. Elevation gain isn’t always accurate but distance usually is so beware it’s a good 30-35% longer than then 5.5km listed here.

great hike with stunning views of the top of Mt Solitary however the loop is longer than the quoted 31 kms we started our hike at Scenic world and had already racked up 35kms by the time we finished at the top of the giant stairway at echo point so would've been at least another couple of kms it took us 12 hours total time so unless you really like a challenge I'd recommend spreading this one over 2 days

Great hike. Can be challenging coming up out of the canyon for those not used to it, but it’s worth it. Grand Canyon shows a very different side of the area once all the lookouts start to look the same.

Not for everyone. There are multiple compulsory wades up to thighs. You will get wet feet and shorts. Very slippery and a lot of scrambling over rocks and logs. Need good route finding ability.
