Overall rating
  • Man, what a boring slog. Given this is promoted as one of the Blue Mountains ‘must do’ hikes, I was entirely underwhelmed. We found ourselves sharing a significant portion of the trail with 4-wheel drives and motorbikes. Our intention for this hike was to escape the typical noise and disturbances that often come with such encounters, but unfortunately, it was unavoidable on this particular route. Essentially, this trail consisted of a series of fire roads designed primarily for emergency vehicle access rather than for hikers. Many parts of the trail were exposed and not particularly enjoyable.

    Numerous campgrounds along the trail were accessible to car campers, which posed a risk of having to share facilities with individuals who may not be aware that hikers rely on these resources, especially water sources. For a more satisfying experience, it would be advisable to base yourself in Katoomba and explore one of the many other trails that are easily accessible and offer much greater natural beauty. Not recommended at all.
