Hike the 1 mile circuit to the bottom of one of the most scenic waterfalls in the Blue Mountains. While you can easily view the falls from the top, it's definitely worth the extra effort to see the 800 foot waterfall cascading down towards you!

The hike starts out at the Prince Henry Cliff Walk at the popular Scenic World in the Blue Mountains. The length of the trail isn't very long, but it's a very steep drop down to the bottom and the hike back out is quite strenuous. We took snacks with us and hung out the bottom for a while before making the trek back up. There's a great view of the waterfall from the top of the rim at Echo Point that's definitely worth checking out.

Excellent just be prepared for the ascend

I would recommend to check the view from the top only if for whatever reason you can't hike. It is absolutely worth it to do the hike, just be prepared that on the way up it is going to be a struggle. Well all things in life require some effort!

Amazing destination

The prince henry cliff walk is one of my all time favs! Especially on a nice crisp summers day :)
