The Forest Way Track is a 4.4km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in Royal National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 45 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

Opened in 1886 the Forest Path was once part of a controversial logging site the first time that logging was stopped in Australia by protest. Now it is a short trail looping around the hill following the Hacking River. Through a shaded environment of ferns and eucalypts this walk passes through a very pretty environment that was definitely worth preserving.
