Grand Canyon Cliff Top and Pope’s Glen Track is a 15.6km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 7 hrs 30 mins to complete.

Summary

This walk is a fantastic way to see many of the highlights of this part of the Blue Mountains National Park. The only major descent and climb on the walk is on the section through the Grand Canyon which is an experience in itself especially if you’ve never been in a canyon before. The track then continues along the cliff tops with excellent views over the Grose Valley and surrounding cliffs. The vegetation change along these sections is interesting with areas of drier and wetter foliage dispersed along the track.
