Hornsby station to Crosslands is a 16.1km, grade 4 One way hike located in Berowra Valley National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 6 hrs 45 mins to complete.

Summary

This section of the Great North Walk starts from Hornsby train station and winds down along the Blue Gum Walk into Fishponds. Enjoy the wonderful water hole at fishponds before continuing along Berowra Creek passing through the Tunks Ridge Reserve and into Galston Gorge. From the Gorge the track keeps following the Berowra Creek past a waterfall to the Crosslands Campsite. People can drive down to Crosslands to pick you up at the end of the walk or organise a taxi. Check the info at the end of the walk for crosslands closing times. Note this walk was re-routed in early 2016 to go via the streets of Hornsby Heights. This re-route is due to the multi-agency decision to close the Fishponds to Steele Bridge section of the Benowie Track. This decision has upset many people and the protest continues.
