A classic Blue Mountains walk - we will start at the Golden Staircase carpark off Narrow Neck and head down the Golden Staircase and meet up with Federal Pass walking track where we walk to the Ruin Castle - a fantastic rock formation that offers 360 degree views to Castle Head, Warragamba, Kings Table and Narrow Neck. 7.9 km return but need to be relatively fit as there is a bit of down and uphill walking.

I had a great walk in the rain a little while ago on this track and saw sooooo many Gymea Lilly buds. This walk is to see them flowering and maybe spotting some whales going south way off off the cliffs Approx 16 kms on track but ladders at the end so must be ok with heights AND I can offer a cafe in the middle - how?s that for class!
