A fairly solid 2-day walk that takes you along the Jamison Valley from Katoomba (and optionally up) to Ruined Castle, over Mt Solitary and back up to Wentworth Falls. There’s some steep sections (up and down!) on both days, rewarded by some great views, waterfalls and cascades and nice walking trails. It can easily be done by public transport, or with a car shuffle.

Traverses Mt Solitary, with some steep ascents and descent. There are multiple campsites so you could stretch this to a 3-day walk, although it makes more sense as an overnight hike.
