This was a stunning hike start to finish! The decent was a great start, passing by and following waterfalls. I felt like we weren’t at the bottom for long then it was a climb up towards Wentworth falls. Climbing the slack stairs was exciting enough we almost forgot how sore our legs were.

So rewarding. When we did it, the signage was unclear for a bit of it and the path was sometimes obstructed by fallen trees so its hard to know if you’ve stayed on track. To stay on track, we followed all the marked signs as shown on the map until they faded out and we started to see pink markers on the trees. We followed those until we saw the official Blue Mountains “Way Out” markers. The pink markers can be tricky to follow as they aren’t arrows. Its a steep decent and a steep incline for about 4 hours. The views are incredible! Worth it but be very careful with the path.

Très belle randonnée. La descente a côté de la cascade est la partie la plus impressionnante. On l'a fait fin juin donc il faut pas trop trainé pour être sûr de sortir avant la nuit.

Very beautiful. Can't remember the details as it was in 2016 - did the area, and it was worth going! I have nice pictures from there :) Accessible by train too if you didn't get a car
