Overall rating
  • Just finished the K2K (29-31 Dec 2022), path is non-existent and completely overgrown with vines and dense regrowth between Dex Creek and Cox’s River. Took us an hour per 750m between those two locations, so definitely make sure to add time at the moment! Path betweek Kanangra and Dex Creek and Coxs River to Katoomba is fine, if a little overgrown.
