Govetts Leap Descent is a 1.2km, grade 4 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 45 mins to complete.
Starting with spectacular views of Govetts Leap from Govetts Leap Lookout this walk sweeps down to the base of the falls. The walk down is showered by drips from the moist moss hanging off the cliffs above. A spectacular track with equally awesome views across the Grose Valley the walk is steep and gives a great sense of the height of surrounding cliffs. (‘leap’ is a Scots dialect word for cataract or waterfall)
