If you’re after a challenging walk while taking in the natural beauty of Blue Mountains National Park, this track will certainly get your heart pumping. Cliff Top walking track traces the valley edge from Govetts Leap lookout to Evans lookout. Located near Blackheath, you’ll be treated to inspiring views over the iconic Grose Valley.

Passing through dense, windswept heathland, you’ll see she-oaks, banksias and stunted mallee scrub. It’s a great area for birdwatching, so keep your eyes peeled for yellow-tailed black cockatoos and king parrots. The heath comes alive with colourful displays of wildflowers in spring, attracting nectar-loving birds such as the white-naped honeyeater. Look back towards Govetts leap from Barrows lookout for brilliant waterfall views.

Crossing Govetts Leap Brook, the track leads past the junction with Braeside walking track to Evans lookout, where you can enjoy a picnic before retracing your steps. For a longer walk, consider adding Grand Canyon track.
