The Laurieton Track is a demanding one way walk through a tall eucalyptus forest. The track is interspersed with magnificent stands of grass trees, burrawang (cycads), tree ferns and bangalow palms. The track joins the 'switchback' or 'top' track to form a continuous link to the North Brother lookout, with its panoramic views of the Camden Haven Inlet. Keep an eye out for koalas on the summit. You can undertake the walk one way with a vehicle waiting at either the summit or in Laurieton. The track head at the Laurieton end is at the end of Laurie Street. In the warmer months, this strenuous walk is best done early or late in the day. NPWS grades this track 'difficult', with the switchback section being moderate.

A challenging hike, with a lot of steps. The trail is rocky and steep in places. It is a beautiful hike, and the views at the top are worth it. I’ve been looking for a track for training for treks since moving from Victoria and this has become a regular hike for me.

No clear signs of the hiking trail or map. Not sure if we got to the wrong location, its where the google map led us to.

After ascent we travelled south to trig and followed old logging track south. We then descended ridge east to road at Deauville. Ridge decent was not a formed track so you may wish to continue along the old logging track.

After reading some of the reviews of this hike i agree with the comments. This trail has lots of stairs and is a heavy workout on the legs. The reward at the top is worth it. Beautiful views from lookouts on either side of the mountain. You may be lucky if the conditions are good to see paragliders launching from the summit.

Great walk as the view at the top is fantastic. It's all straight up ....640 steps plus the rocks! Legs turn to jelly on the way back!

A great short but strenuous walk. The Laurieton Track features a variety of vegetation types including sub tropical rainforest. The views at the end are the best on the NSW coast.
