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.

Awesome trek. Very hard!!!

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.

7.8 km of beautiful nature. lots of stairs, but every one of them worth it. the end wasn’t easy for me

The perfect walk for a hot day in Summer... highly recommend doing this with a lilo. We walked / swam along the river and it was pretty exhausting. Also make sure you know where the exit point is.

We discovered Govetts leap. Approx 7km return from Evansookout carpark. lots of steps but well worth it for the veiws.

Had to give 5 stars. An iconic walk in the upper Blue Mountains. Great views of Mt Banks, highest cliff in the Blue Mountains and great views of the Grose Valley. The Grand Canyon walk is superb with extensive periods of cool temperate rainforest. There is a fair amount of stairs, overall 640 metres of ascent and all worth it. The last part is the Braeside walk beside a sandstone bottomed creek that passes through a lush Blue Mountains hanging swamp. Can get a bit crowded in the holiday season but one of the great walks in Blackheath.

Rated hard for a reason, a word of advice... travel light

Challenging. Prepare for lots of steps. But views are so worth it!

Absolutely amazing! Apparently there was quite a bit of rain last week and we saw more waterfalls than I've ever seen on a hike. Add into that the magnificent scenery with cliffs and valleys and overlooks and this is one of our best hikes ever. We went from the conservation hut along the national pass trail to Wentworth Falls then went into the town along the Charles Darwin trail which was a very relaxing end to our trip and puts you a block away from the train station. The steep climb up at the end was tough but very safe. Just take your time and rest when needed and it will be no problem. .

Absolutely beautiful. Challenging and rugged, but so worth it!

Really enjoyable walk. Little bit steap on the way in & out but so worth it.
Looks like they are about to repair the stairs at the Evans Head lookout entrance. Will be great to walk down once finished.

Perfect walk during summer, even on a hot day. The thick jungle like setting ensures a cool and scenic walk! Be prepared for some step climbing at the end. Get there early to beat the crowds. 7-8am is a good time to start, or even earlier. It will take between 2.5-3.5 hours to complete. Bring plenty of water and snacks. There are plenty of places to stop and sit to soak in the surrounds.

Great trail, however I would suggest that its more than moderate difficulty as it has some extremely steep stairs and paths. Especially down to the Empress Falls.

The views are fabulous though so well worth the effort.

It's a really nice hike.

stunning view and perfect if you're looking for a little workout during enjoying nature
