This took us 3 1/2 hours to complete. It was a great track with some steep incline and steep declines, as long as you are fit and healthy it should be fine. There are some beautiful viewing vantage points. The second half of the Trail has some longer flat walks. Don’t forget to stop and take in the views when you see them. If you’re doing the hike on the weekend and finish at Brooklyn make sure you look up the train or bus schedule when we did it the trains were not running on weekends however the buses were coming every 30 minutes to take you back to Cowan . All in all a beautiful hike with good views and variety.

The first half is incredible with amazing views and steep challenging ascents, but the second half... although had some nice views, got very boring as it was just an off-road for vehicles. Definitely worth it though!

Started at Cowan. Nice walk to start with then it gets steep and the uphills begin. Amazing challenge. The last hour of it dragged on for a bit till u get to the downhill part that wakes u up. Easy walk to the station afterwards.
Sings are everywhere so u can’t get lost. Overall i loved this walk. Took us just under 4 hours . We stopped for pics .

Great walk to start early morning. We started from Cowan and finished at Hawkesbury River with few great cafes just over 04 hours 20 minutes .

Awesome walk with some beautiful swimming holes along the way. Easy to get to and from on the train and a hard enough walk to test the legs.

Great trail for a long point to point walk. Well traveled and marked. Bring your own supplies. Easily accessible via train (make sure to look at the schedule ahead of time)

Jerusalem bay is a spectacular sight on a sunny day. Leave time to have a swim on the warmer days. The walk has some great views. Climbing out of Jerusalem bay isn't for the faint hearted but we'll worth it.
