Part of the trail was closed off but still plenty of nice views and lookouts to make it worthwhile

Lovely trail, we started from Lone Pine Road at Leura and joined up to the track. Part of the track is closed due to landslide, can walk around this back up on the road and reconnect at Olympic rock. Lovely and quiet just before the long weekend.

Great trail - beautiful views of the Blue Mountains. The trail is well signposted and moderately trafficked. The moderate rating for this one, we would say is accurate. For an afternoon/day hike, it’s a very nice one!

Awesome trail with stunning views! Can imagine it gets very busy during summer but I went in May and it was lovely! A few people but very peaceful and beautiful views. It’s a great trail if you haven’t hiked for a while and/or going solo; it’s hard to get lost, really well signposted and straightforward. Ended up being 20KM for me with walk to and from Katoomba station.

Une partie du Leura Cascade est fermé (mais toujours accessible) et le Gordon Fall Lookout est inaccessible à cause des glissements de terrains et feux récents

Great walk from Prince Henry Cliff at Katoomba to Leura Falls and back! Few steps on the way. Allow approx 4-5 hrs return for this section including stopping briefly at the lookouts on the way!

I did the round walk which is a short, easy walk with a couple of lookouts.

Excellent views but lots of crowds in some parts. Some of the trail is paved, some boardwalk, some earth.

Easy and close to the road. Well that’s also a downside, You can hear all the buses going by and there’s a lot of people on the track. My shoulder was literally shoved past! On a Friday morning! Not during school holidays. But there are a lot of tourists from all over the world. Maybe that’s custom...
