The track begins approximately 6km north of Pointer lookout in Morton National Park on the far south coast of NSW. While its remote location makes it best suited to more experienced walkers, most agree the track’s flat plateau is easy enough to walk. You’ll soon forget the leg strain at any rate as the unobstructed views are enough to take your breath away.
The only way to do the vista justice is to see it for yourself. Gaze in awe at the mountainous backdrop, including the Castle and the unbelievable Shrouded Gods, and be amazed by the sight down to the Clyde Gorge below.
Stop for photo opportunities beneath the prolific eucalypts and pinch yourself to prove your surroundings are real. This is definitely a walk you’ll be recommending to others.
