Narrow Neck to Castle Head is a 4.2km, grade 4 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 45 mins to complete.

Summary

From the locked gate on Glenraphael Dr on Narrow Neck this walk heads out to Castle Head lookout. From the Lookout there are fantastic views over the Jamison Valley back to Katoomba and over to Mount Solitary. You get a birds eye view of Ruined Castle and distant views of the Three Sisters. Much of the walk follows the western escarpment giving views most of the way. The road out to the gate is dirt and is generally well maintained.
