Blue Gum Loop - also called Joe's Mountain Circuit - is a short, popular and very scenic circuit near Hornsby through Berowra Valley Regional Park, passing the Fishponds on Berowra Creek and Washtub on Waitara Creek. It's been recognised by the Sydney Morning Herald in 2015 as one of the “Six of the best bushwalks” in Sydney. A great family walk.
