Another one of my favourite walks!  All on fire trail, the going is quite easy as we amble along the Blue Gum swamp track, usually full of birdsong and one of the best stands of majestic blue gums in the Blue Mountains. 

To get the heart rate up, we will detour up the Bees Nest Hill track, a steady steep climb up to the Grose Head South lookout but we will be rewarded with a spectacular view for lunch.  After descending, we countinue through the swamp to complete the circuit.  

Note car pool is required as there is no public transport to the start.  When booking, please advise if you have a vehicle and are prepared to drive.  We will of course adhere to COVID safe practices.
