Often regarded as the most impressive walking trail in the Blue Mountains, the Grand Canyon Walk will leave you in awe as you hike through lush rainforest with several creek crossings, waterfalls, huge sandstone walls and rock overhangs.

Constructed and opened to the public in 1907, the 6km long Grand Canyon walking track was the first of its kind and has since been challenged by thousands of hiking enthusiasts each year.

 

Our NSW Coordinator Deb will meet you just before 10.00am in The Grand Canyon Loop carpark - the car park is fairly large but she will be wearing a bright orange Adventurous Women ® ™ Cap for easy identification and her contact number will be supplied with your booking confirmation should you need to contact her.

Deb has completed several times this fabulaous walk several times or more and knows the track (and the Blue Mountains) like the back of her hand.

Make sure you bring your lunch along so we can enjoy a picnic at the end of the trail (weather permitting)
