Lockley Pylon is a 6.8km, grade 4 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 3 hrs 15 mins to complete.

Summary

Lockley Pylon Track is an outstanding walk offering some amazing views and interesting side trips. From Mt Hay Rd the walk passes the prominent features of the Pinnacles (with an optional side trip exploring these) and climbs to Lockley Pylon which gives 360-degree views of the Mt Hay area and Grose Valley. Another optional side trip to Fortress Canyon Waterfall is well worth the walk with its contrasting plateau cliff and valley features creating some breath-taking scenery.
