This challenging walking track, from Conservation Hut, explores the magical, upper section of Valley of the Waters in Jamison Valley at Blue Mountains National Park. Wentworth Pass loop walk takes in scenic waterfalls and valley views as well as magnificent open forests and dense rainforest.
The track leads to Empress lookout with exceptional views, before it plunges deep into the valley. You’ll notice the eucalypts and angophoras give way to lush fern trees and moss-covered rocks. Everywhere you look there’s water; from the gentle splashing of creeks to the dull roar of cascading waterfalls.
The pool beneath Wentworth Falls is a perfect spot to relax and revel in the moist cool because from here on, the only way is up. Taking the Slack stairs you’ll join National Pass before arriving at Wentworth Falls picnic area. Head to the ‘Hut’ for an easy lunch or unpack the picnic hamper.
