Baker's Cottage is a 1.5km, grade 3 return hike, located in Lane Cove National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

The Baker's Cottage Heritage Track is a quick and interesting walk. The track itself is mainly drivable road and turns to bush track before going up the hill to the cottage itself. At 140 years of age Baker's Cottage is the oldest unmodified structure still standing in the Ku-ring-gai area. All entrances to the cottage are blocked so you can't see inside. It is worth looking around the ground to see some other historic remains.
