Key information: Federal Pass
- The huge sandstone cliffs around Blackheath are justly famous, with their wide views across the forested Blue Mountains which fade into a distant blue haze.
- This trail follows the narrow ledge half way down that winds for several dramatic, vertiginous miles around the vagaries of the rockface to a cool, clear pool below the beautiful Wentworth falls.
- A long flight of steps cut into the living rock gets you up to the path back along the cliff top, a fine walk in its own right.
