Easy track

This walk leads from the information center at Echo Point down through the Blue Mountains National Park to Oreades Lookout. It is a popular walk and follows a smooth concreted path the whole way. There are no steps but sections do get steep in places. The short side trip to Spooners lookout is well worth the extra effort. A lovely walk suitable for the whole family.

Devil’s Hole Trail

Download & Print Map and Notes




3 hrs 30 mins

7 km One way


572 m

Very experienced only

Enjoying a variety of different environments, Devil’s Hole trail descends into the valley below Katoomba via the Six Foot Track, before rising up through the difficult, and often slippery, Devil’s Hole. This is definitely one of the more difficult trails in the area. Walkers can enjoy great views from the top of the valley at both ends of the walk, as well as an extremely pretty creek environment as the track passes through Nellie’s Glen.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.

Hard track

Starting from Megalong Rd, this walk will take you past the historic Megalong Cemetery and then through some farmland as you wander along private dirt roads on part of the Six Foot Track. Just shy of 1km into the walk, you will then follow a track as it crosses the Guyvey Bridge and meanders through the pleasant open farmland with views of the distant escarpment. In time, the walk leaves the farms and explores the more dense forest and granite boulders before coming to the granite carved Coxs River. There is a chance to explore the river up close or take a bird’s-eye view from the swing bridge. The tracknotes also describe a side trip to the Six Foot Track lodge, great if you want to stay and explore the area for longer.

Experienced only

One of the longer day-walks in the Katoomba area, this track goes from the very popular Scenic World to the fantastic lookout on top of the Ruined Castle and then on to the amazing Mt Solitary. Be prepared for a long, but amazing, day of viewing the Jamison Valley. Make sure you are back to catch the train up in time, or be prepared to walk out one of the alternate routes, either via Furber Steps or via the Golden Staircase.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.
