Furber Steps-Scenic Railway is a 900m, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 15 mins to complete.


This popular walk descends into the Jamison Valley passing great views of Mt Solitary and Katoomba Falls. Be sure to allow time to explore as many of the side trips as possible as these are just amazing (especially the cascading water at Katoomba Falls). To save the walk back up the hill take a ride on the Scenic Railway (make sure you get there before the last train at 4:50pm).
