Golden Staircase to Mt Solitary via Ruined Castle is a 11.7km, grade 5 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 8 hrs 45 mins to complete.

Summary

With quite significant hills this is a great walk is for the day-walker looking for something more challenging than the average Katoomba cliff top walk. With fantastic views at Botting’s Lookout from the top of the Ruined Castle and especially good views from Mt Solitary this walk is well worth the time invested.
