This is a short but sweet circuit walk that lets you walk above and below the cliff line. The track passes under the cliff line for some time, with views over the Kanimbla Valley. Climbers will love the great access to the walls, while walkers will enjoy the scenery and flowers in the heath. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.

Getting started From the car park, this walk heads to the service trail gate parallel with the road (approximately in line with the end of the grassy median strip) and then onto the trail behind. The track passes through the heath for a while until it nears the cliff edge and narrows. The walk continues around the hill through the heath for some time to then begin a descent over a rocky surface with cut-in stairs. The track winds right, keeping with the cliffline while looking out to the valley on the left. Be mindful of climbers and falling objects along these cliffs. The cliffline disappears behind scrub as the track reaches a man-made basin filled by drips from the cliff roof above. The track rounds out of this glen to climb up the hill, through heath to the signposted intersection.....
