The cliff top walking track between Govetts Leap and Evans lookout offers some of the most breathtaking scenic views in all of the Blue Mountains, according to NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.

You’ll be spoiled with bird watching, wild flowers, and plenty of lookouts along the way,” the Service says.

If you’re after an energetic walk while taking in the natural beauty of the Blue Mountains National Park, this track will certainly get your heart pumping.

“Cliff Top walking track follows the cliff edge from Govetts Leap lookout to Evans lookout. Located near Blackheath, you’ll be treated to inspiring views over the iconic Grose Valley. And with the sun shining from the east, this is the perfect track to warm up on a cool morning,” they say.

Passing through dense, windswept heathland, you’ll see sheoaks, banksias and stunted mallee scrub.

The Parks and Wildlife Service suggests looking back towards Govetts Leap from Barrow lookout for brilliant waterfall views.

Crossing Govetts Leap Brook, the track passes the junction with Braeside walking track on your right.

Don’t forget to pack your lunch so you can enjoy a picnic at Evans lookout, before retracing your steps.
