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.

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.

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.
