  • This trail is in the Grose Wilderness, where cycling and walking groups are limited to 8 people.

  • It's a good idea to fill in the free trip intention form and hire a PLB before you set out. Bring a topographic map and compass or GPS.

For an awe-inspiring day walk or mountain bike ride to view the magnificent Grose Wilderness, Burramoko trail leads along a ridge to a dramatic rocky bluff. This medium difficulty trail is a great nature day trip in the Blue Mountains for bushwalkers and cyclists.

Easily accessed from Blackheath via Ridgewell Road, the trail meanders through heathland and open forest. In spring, look out for distinctive red waratahs, and grass trees that bloom with creamy coloured flowers.

If you're cycling, leave your bike at the turning circle at the end of the trail to walk up the short, bush track to the unfenced Baltzer lookout, also known as Hanging Rock. Please take extreme care around the cliff edge drop off. Breathe in the pure mountain air as you enjoy the sublime views of Hanging Rock and the Grose Valley.

With all that crisp mountain air and exercise, you might want to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy with the million dollar views. If you love the thrill of cycling check out Mount Banks road cycling route.
