Nice easy trail showing a more lush side of Mt. Kembla with some beautiful rainforest. Enjoyed a lot of birdsong on my walk. The fire trail section was a bit of a test for my barefoot bushwalking, was quite rocky, but I made I through.

Great walk and we took the recommendation of starting in reverse. Nice climb at the end.

Great walk. We did it backwards and the 100 little steps at the back were loads of fun (insert sarcasm here). The track was mostly shaded which was great, good tracks. Took us 1 hour.

I'd recommend doing this in reverse, to save the beautiful forest walk for the end - otherwise it starts off amazing and ends with a road walk. Other than that it's a pretty walk, very easy along the service road and main road, a bit slippery in the trees due to the huge amount of debris from all the recent wind, but the trail is still easy to follow.

As Roger K already stated, start at the Windy Gully end and follow a service trail until you get to a sign for both the ring track and the summit. This becomes a single trail which you can follow to the summit or simply come out at the road. To get back to the starting point we just followed the road back.

Not a bad walk. There were loads of palms scattered on the gully floor which made the track difficult to follow. Most of the walk is on a service trail.

This trail is best done in reverse from the Windy Gully end if you are taking in the summit also . Follows the old ais water line to the old mine surface area on the southern end. Going back to Mt Kembla off to the right is a beautiful view of what can be described as a amphitheatre of the side of the mountain with a palm jungle before you head to the base of the summit track.
