Burramoko Ridge (Hanging Rock) cycle trail is a 10km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Blue Mountains National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.
For an awe-inspiring ride to the edge of the magnificent Grose Wilderness, Burramoko cycle trail leads along a ridge to a dramatic rocky bluff. A trail of medium difficulty, it’s an ideal nature day trip in Blue Mountains National Park, near Blackheath. With scenic valley views and crisp mountain air, it’s a sublime ride for adventurous cyclists and bushwalkers.
Meandering through heathlands and open forests, look for the distinctive grass trees, with creamy coloured flowers in the spring. Ending at Baltzers lookout, also known as Hanging Rock, you’ll feel on top of the world as you gaze across the scenic tree-lined gorge fringed by golden cliffs.
With all that crisp mountain air and exercise, enjoy a picnic lunch with million dollar views. If you love the thrill of cycling check out Mount Banks road cycling route.
