Hat Hill canyon at Blackheath is an ideal canyon for beginners. There are no abseils. The canyon follows Hat Hill Creek with creek walking, small jumps and some short swims. When the canyon narrows there are steep canyon walls. Just before the creek plunges into the Grose Valley there are "spa" pools to enjoy. The climb out is along a pleasant ridge returning over Hat Hill. Members must be able to swim short distances. A wet suit is recommended. This canyon will be conducted at leisurely pace.
