Bike & Hike in Beautiful Blackheath!
A unique day out where you get to experience the best of Blackheath & the Blue Mountains both on foot and on a Mountain Bike.
We begin our day in Blackheath with a bike & equipment fitting, followed by professional instruction on riding, safety and environmental minimal impact.
From the centre of Blackheath, we ride to Burramoko Fire Trail and into the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains’ National Park. Our destination is the world famous “Hanging Rock” at Baltzer Lookout, which is reached after 8km of riding.This lookout is not open to vehicular traffic and is only reached by walking or riding on the fire trail- it is less visited than other areas of the gorgeous Blackheath, but is absolutely more impressive and rewarding. The area is remote and the vast views into the Grose valley are unfenced. It is truly a wild & spectacular place!
After visiting Hanging Rock, we ride back to Blackheath and begin making our way to the Grand Canyon walking trail, one of the, if not the, best and most scenic hikes in the Mountains (your in for an absolute treat). Along the way we stop for lunch at the Braeside creek track where we can do an optional side-trip down the creek to Bridal Veil Falls- The Blue Mountains tallest single drop waterfall at 175m!
For the Grand Canyon walking trail we leave the bikes behind and begin our hike into the sandstone canyon below. This walk takes us through varied environments, deep into the slot canyon where the plant species remain relatively unchanged after millions of years… WOW!
What goes down, must come back up… the ascent back out of the canyon is challenging but extremely rewarding. Where our hike up ends, we finish the day with another brilliant view at Evan’s Lookout.
