Fort Rock is a 1.6km, grade 3 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs to complete.


The track to Fort Rock is a short walk and gives a taste of what lies beneath the cliff line. The walk is a return journey from the end of Bundarra St directly to Fort Rock. From the top of the rock you can see into the Kanimbla Valley and by taking the side trip out to the cliff line west of Fort Rock you get even better views over the valley and the cliffs around Porters Pass.
