Pool of Siloam walk is a 1.6km return walk in Blue Mountains National Park. Start at Gordon Falls picnic area and hike down many steps into the cool of the rainforest to a waterfall then up steps again to a fabulous view at Golf Links lookout.

At 1.6km return, Pool of Siloam walk is ideal if you’re looking for a short hike that showcases a waterfall and a great lookout within 1 hour.

Starting from Gordon Falls picnic area, you’ll head down through lush rainforest to Pool of Siloam. Here, you can enjoy the sight of Gordon Creek cascading down the rock into the pool at its base.

Continuing on, you’ll cross a series of stepping stones over the creek and then follow the track as it climbs up to Golf Links lookout. The reward for your efforts is a stunning view across Jamison Valley to Mount Solitary and Three Sisters Aboriginal Place.

This walk is a short section of the much longer Grand Cliff Top Walk.
