Blackheath to Blue Gum loop is a 24.1km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 days to complete.

Summary

This walk is great for fit people getting into overnight walking with its fantastic scenery and nostalgia as a classic overnighter. The change from being on the plateau to in the valley is a dramatic one as the track passes through the bush canyon and rainforest. Staying the night near Blue Gum Forest in Acacia Flats also adds to the experience. With the public transport options access to this walk is made easier.
