This guided walk starts on the well-trodden Perimeter fire trail. It won’t take long before you come across an area well-known for its abundant displays of beautiful wildflowers. 

Next, you’ll follow your National Parks and Wildlife guide onto a little-known walking track through an unspoiled landscape.

You’ll pass an old “trig” station and large areas of sandstone with Aboriginal engravings.

Once you reach the narrow end of the ridge, you’ll stop for lunch perched above Smith and Cowan Creeks. From here, you’ll have magical views across Ku-ring-gai Chase. On the way back, you’ll pass some more Aboriginal engraving sites.

Bring at least 2 litres of drinking water, lunch and snacks. It's a good idea to wear enclosed shoes and bring a hat, rain gear, sunscreen, insect protection and emergency contact information.
