Route/Trail notes

The walk is quite easy and well cleared.  The trail varies between rocky ascents and wet/muddy patches of rainforest.  Occasionally some part of the track might be closed, at which point bushwalkers are directed onto Cliff Drive.  The walk appears less popular than some of the other tracks in the upper mountains, and is easy to access by public transport.  

Permits/Costs

No permits required; free.

There is no tourist information centre in Leura, so best to look this one up online or just follow the signs - you can't go too wrong.

Comments

Great walk, fairly well signed. This walk follows the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, it's about half the distance.
