Baltzer Lookout Hanging Rock is a 7.6km, grade 4 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 3 hrs 30 mins to complete.


This walk to Baltzer Lookout rewards you with excellent scenery and a view over the stunning Hanging Rock (aka the Finger). The track is mainly management trail and would be great on a mountain bike (to the end of the management trail). The large cliff edges are unfenced and quite exposed so do take care. Although short and relatively unchanging in scenery the walk to Baltzer Lookout is well worth it.
