"Roenitz continued" Blackheath Off The Beaten Path Tip by iandsmith
Blackheath Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 10 photos
Having done the walk I can let you know a couple of things. I didn't include the fact that the walk is labelled "easy". Take it from me, it's definitely not! The zig-zag is steep and rocky and then the trail through the pass is almost indiscernable in places, sometimes overgrown with ferns. Then it gets hard as you slog up towards Ross Cave. It's rocky, very uneven, at times dangerous even and it's uphill.
In other places trees have fallen on the track and who knows how many months it will be before they are cleared. This is not a track like those at the more popular spots around Katoomba, Leura and Wentworth Falls. It may never be repaired.
The most rewarding for me was the undercliff section below Ross Cave; it's spectacular.
Summing up, not a walk for the fainthearted and take something to drink, as allways.
