Blue Mountains NP – Blackheath

23 – 26 April 2018

The Village of Blackheath is the entrance to several nice hikes and lookouts. The star of the day was a 6.3 km, 2 hour hike of the Grand Canyon Loop Track. The trail is rated for medium difficulty at 3 to 4 hours. It is nothing like the Grand Canyon USA but it was a great hike. We lost count, there are hundreds if not thousands of steps. The trail decends from Evans Lookout and winds through a thin canyon before re-emerging from the bottom. We debated whether the Grand Canyon Loop or the Overcliff-Undercliff Trail, near Wentworth Falls, was our favorite.

Blackheath is also home to Govetts Leap Lookout, Anvil Rock and Wind Eroded Cave; however our other favorite was Pulpit Rock.
