Moderate trail. Enjoyable. Combination of fire trails, easy bush trails, rocky scrambles with some very challenging rocky scrambles at the top. Lovely view from the top. Beautiful lake. We went off trail twice and were thankful to ALLTrails for notifying us both times.

Great walk on the outskirts of Sydney. Street parking at the start of the walk & close to Waterfall train station as well. Did not pass anyone else on the walk & did it in an anti clockwise direction. Did spot a flock of black cockatoos & could hear them down near the lake at the top of Mt westmacott. The climb to the summit is tricky & a challenge for younger kids & people with any mobility issues. Path is well marked with white dots painted to show you the way.

HikingScramble

Trail is a bit boring with a lot of maintenance/fire trail walking. Some good bits of rock scrambling up the mountain. Nice view from up there and the lake is pretty. Peaceful walk with few people, but there are nicer walks nearby eg the Kingfisher Pool or Karloo Pools.

As per most reviews you do need to reference the map when walking., the day before has been wet and it was a little muddy, seeing the creeks and water flow was beautiful... it was a gorgeous day. I can imagine in summer trekking to the pools would be great. We will be back.

Very peaceful. Great to visit on a sunny day after rain, as long as you don't mind jumping over a few creeks. Definitely need the app with the map for the section through the campsite, to avoid wrong turns.

Bird watching

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk. The map on this app helped us stay on track. We’ve had a lot of rain recently so the creek hopping added to the excitement. Lots of giggles as we pulled ourselves up the steeper rock sections. Proud to say it was easily accomplished by two fun mums on a beautiful winters day. The birds were on top form. Will definitely be doing it again! The only reason I didn’t give it four was because I’d have got completely lost if it hadn’t been for the app.

We didn’t come across many other people when we did this trail which was great! The view from the top was amazing. I get why some people got lost during the walk but we had the map on this app open to help guide us when we were unsure so we didn’t have any issues.

A lot of easy to miss turn offs, watch out for those, otherwise it was nice. Not too busy. The view from the mountain is wonderful.

Excellent view from the Mt summit. Did involve a bit of rock scrambling, but with a group age range from 5 years to 65 years, everybody enjoyed it.

Most of it followed wide easy trails. A small portion at the start/end, and the short climb up to the mountain were quite steep/rocky. Markers on these sections were useful as otherwise would be easy to lose the path.

Beautiful hike and pretty easy to accomplish. Do remember to bring insect spray as the bugs will sting you if you are like me who attract bugs
