  • Just hiked the trail over 3 days from jenolan to Katoomba. Was pretty in some sections - first 10km and last 10km. The rest was fire trail with no view and just went on and on. Definitely recommend do...  more »
  • Katoomba to Jenolan. Lots of hillwork. Stunning scenery. Hiked with Life's an Adventure and was not disappointed. Cold and rainy at summit on day 2 but even that was beautiful.  more »

  • A really beautiful and gorgeous track to hike. We only did the first part of the hike to Cox's camping ground near the Eco Lodge and back to Katoomba. Well marked track.
  • Experience and fitness required. Long distances between campgrounds. Be prepared with water treatment tablets etc
  • Fantastic track for hiking. Can be done in 1-2-3 days, depends on your pace. Nice camping spots along the way, well maintained tracks, quite quiet in the off seasons if you're after tranquillity. Do not underestimate the degree of elevation change you'll go through. Sore legs will be had if you're unprepared.
  • I've been here twice and I've loved it both times. Really diverse walk - so you get to see a range of different landscapes and geographical features like rivers and bridges. The walk is quite long and depending on how you are feeling you can do a single section of the track for a day hike.
  • Great hike with our family. One of the best backpacking experiences yet. It is a challenge in places but worth the ending at Jenolan Caves. Gorgeous!
