Iconic 6 foot track
Revised activity from the originally advertised 2 day pack walk as the 6-foot track is currently closed between Nellies Glen and the Megalong Valley. This medium level day walk will now start in the Megalong Valley near the old cemetery and finish at the Cox's River Reserve, via Bowtel's bridge and the lodge. We will meander through rolling hills, past the winery, traversing the valleys and crossing the impressive Cox's River. Enjoy a leisurely lunch by the river before returning by the same route. The walk can be extended beyond the river if there is consensus in the group. With so few activities available at the moment, this is an opportunity to enjoy a beautiful section of the 6 foot track and whet the appetite for when we do the full 2 day walk.

Upper Hat Hill Creek
On Sunday 17 April, our walk begins on the S side of Hat Hill Creek and takes us on a pleasant walk through bushland to upper Hat Hill Creek. Following a rough track, we descend to the creek then begin climbing in and out of the spurs that extend from Burromoko Ridge. This is rugged pagoda country only 2km from Blackheath. The weathering of ironstone and sandstone, plus a little imagination has produced a giant armchair, three little sisters and a top hat carved out of rock. The scenery is weathered sandstone at its best. The walk ends with a magnificent hanging swamp waterfall and a huge cave. There is a rope assisted climb of a rock face to complete the walk. The total distance travelled is around 6 km. Scrambling up rocks and descending steep ridges is involved. Previous trips have been dry all the way but there may be some wet patches. This walk is in a Blue Mountains City Council reserve which is not closed. Repairs to the bridge at Mt Victoria have improved the traffic flow but the Sunday afternoon traffic from Blackheath is usually congested.
