Easily accessible by public transport, this track gives walkers a good taste of what Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park has to offer. Be sure to spare some time for a dawdle around the bays on Cowan Creek.

Mt Kuring Gai Track to Berowra Station

This walk explores three valleys, with great displays of wild flowers in spring, and some nice sandstone overhangs. The section between Mt Kuring-gai and the end of Calna Creek is particularly nice, and Naa Badu Lookout is well worth the small side trip. Take the time to enjoy the many creek side rest areas along the way.
