The gpx file for this walk starts at Stuart’s Road, Katoomba where there is space to park cars, but alternatively you can easily walk from Katoomba train station and back, which extends the walk to 16km.
This beautiful walk passes through rainforest and offers stunning views from several lookouts. It has some variations on usual routes including a short off-track to explore the magnificent Bonnie Doon Falls (a morning tea spot) as well as a waterfall visit for lunch before the superb ascent up through Devils Hole. At the top there are visits to a couple of different lookouts before returning to the starting place on Stuart’s Road.
It’s mainly on good bush tracks with some easy scrambling. One steep ascent 320 metres. It can be slippery if wet. Map: Katoomba
