Lockleys Pylon walking track is a 7km, grade 3 return hike, located in the Blue Mountains National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.
Take in the serenity of Blue Mountains National Park on Lockleys Pylon walking track. Named after J.G. Lockley, a journalist who supported conservation efforts to save the Blue Gum Forest from logging in the 1930s.
With some of the best views in Blue Mountains, this walk traverses through the heath to a small peak overlooking eucalypt forests of the Grose Valley. Climb up to Lockleys Pylon and take in the Golden sandstone cliffs of Mount Hay and Mount Banks.
Spring is great for photograph opportunities, as you’ll walk through a sea of wildflowers, including red lambertias and even the pink flannel flower if wildfires have passed through. There’s also excellent birdwatching and lots of wildlife to see. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go birdwatching.
Pack a picnic or a thermos and enjoy a hot cuppa while you admire the views. Or wander back to Leura for a gourmet meal at one of the charming local cafes.
