Furber Steps-Scenic Railway walking track is a 2.4km, grade 3 return hike, located in the Blue Mountains National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
If you love places where mountains and water meet, try this popular track into Jamison Valley in Blue Mountains National Park. The difficult Furber Steps-Scenic Railway walking track is full of superb views and a brilliant day trip for walkers who love a challenge with a scenic view.
Descending through the valley, you’ll enter a world of lush rainforest and cascading waterfalls. Stopping to gaze across at majestic Mount Solitary rising out of the valley floor, you might hear the call of the catbird or wompa pigeon. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to bird watch.
Explore the lush valley on a number of short detours, making sure to stop for a memorable picnic beside the tumbling waters of Katoomba Falls. The opportunity to take the world-famous Scenic Railway or Scenic Cableway back to the top might just be too irresistible. However, if you’re after more heart-pumping action, return back up the stairs.
