Nepean Lookout is a 1.3km, grade 3 Return hike located in  New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This walk is along the old road which is now a management trail making navigation easy. The walk brings you to the top of the Nepean Gorge escarpment with great views up and down the gorge. This is a short walk after a fairly long drive but if you are in the area it is well worth getting the car dirty. The lookout is not fenced.
