McKeowns Valley Circuit is a 3.5km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs to complete.


Looping around the northern bush tracks surrounding Jenolan Caves this walk explores a variety of different environments up on the ridges and down along the river. The campsite is a great spot to break and enjoy the quiet at one of the less-frequented areas of the park. Be sure to allow time to enjoy the views from up on the ridge and especially of Carlotta’s Arch. Watch out for stinging nettles down on the river.
