    The Prince Henry Clifftop Walk is a really nice one - its about 5kms along the clifftop and is graded 'medium'.

    Otherwise, if you're up for something a little longer, you can take the Giant Staircase down at the Three Sisters/Echo Point (its about 600-700 steps, but as long as you're going down, its fine - I've done it a couple of times when I was only a child), then walk along the valley floor (a track called the Federal Pass) to the Scenic Railway, which you can then use to get back to the top - it is a disused coal mining railway with one of the steepest gradients in the world - its really fun!

    You can then take the Prince Henry Clifftop Walk back to your starting point, near the Giant Staircase, at Echo Point. This is 7 kilometres and is graded hard, but only because of the Giant Staircase - its flat the rest of the time.

    Enjoy your holiday!

    The above are both good options. Another excellent easy wander is to head to a turnoff just before Blackheath and head along to Evans Lookout. There you can loop down and around the 'Grand Canyon' and back up to the car park. The walk isn't hard and has some great views into the Grose valley and quite a bit of canyon rainforest.

    I'm not sure if it is open at the moment but another excellent walk nearby is to park at Govetts Leap and then walk down what feels like a sheer cliff to the bottom of Bridal Veil Falls (which is a really exciting walk down) and then loop around the bottom and back up to Evans Lookout. over 11 years ago
