Hike to Katoomba Falls
Australia › Prince Henry Cliff Walk
Added by Korey Taylor
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.
