Six Foot Track Walk

Six Foot Track walk

3 day Pack Free walk

The Greater Blue Mountains region suffered from significant bushfires in January 2020. Some residents lost their homes and for many, they will also lose their livelihoods relying heavily on tourism as their main source of income. At Life’s An Adventure we believe it is important to support this community in their hour of need, by continuing to run our tours here. Luckily for this particular tour, only day one’s walk has been affected and the rest of the itinerary and accommodation are untouched. We ask guests to support this area and consider this as a great walking option for 2020.

Our fantastic 3-day guided pack free Six Foot Track Walk journeys from Jenolan Caves to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. Winding through State forests and national parks, the 6 Foot Track walk follows the 44-kilometre route of the original 1884 bridle track.

A walking tour with all the creature comforts

A Pack Free Walk
This walk has been designed for those looking for a guided Pack Free walking experience with everything done for you so you can focus on enjoying the walk. Our guests won’t be asked to carry their clothes or overnight bags for the entire tour, these will be transported for you each day. This is a big advantage for our guests, in that you will avoid carrying a heavy rucksack on your back every day. With Life’s An Adventure, you will carry as little as your water bottle,  camera and lunch each day!

Comfortable Accommodation
Accommodation varies across our tours based on what is available in each area, we always choose the best available as close to the trail as possible. We don’t believe in destroying the natural environment by building in National Parks and areas of conservation, but we do believe in supporting local businesses and staying in existing accommodation. Having a comfortable place to rest is an important part of our walking experience. On this tour, you will spend two nights at the Valley View a cosy homestay with stunning views over the valley and an infinity pool.

Extra ‘Wow Factors’
On a Life’s An Adventure walk we always include wow factor’s to make your walk extra special. On arrival at Jenolan Caves, we include a guided tour of the amazing limestone formations of the caves. Whilst on day 3 we stop at the charming Dryridge Estate Winery in the Megalong Valley, with spectacular views of the Blue Mountains escarpment this is a perfect place to relax and enjoy lunch, and wine tasting.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Jenolan Caves to Black Range - Revised to Grand Canyon walk
Six Foot Track Walk

REVISED ITINERARY DUE TO BUSHFIRES:
Please note day one’s walk from Black Range to Jenolan Caves was affected by the January 2020 bushfires, as was access to Jenolan Caves. When this part of the walk is re-established we will add this back into our itinerary.

NEW Day 1: Katoomba – Grand Canyon walk
9.5kms. 4 hours. Moderate grade. We meet at the historic Carrington Hotel In Katoomba for our walking briefing at 8.30am. From here we transfer to the start of our walk and descend into the world heritage listed Grand Canyon, often referred to as one of the most impressive walks in the region. Admire spectacular sandstone cliffs, plunging waters and lush green rainforests on this truly magnificent walk. Afterwards, we transfer to our accommodation for the night at the Valley View Homestay. This accommodation perched on the side of a hill offers stunning views over the valley and features an infinity pool where you can cool off after a day’s walk. Tonight enjoy a two-course meal featuring local produce and wines and chat about the day’s adventures.

ORIGINAL ITINERARY: Black Range to Jenolan Caves
Walk: Approximately 10.1kms. 4 hours walking with breaks. Walk: Medium grade. Uphill walking today. Elevation of 250m.
This walk has been designed to follow the direction from Jenolan Caves to Katoomba. This allows us to walk towards the spectacular Katoomba Escarpment providing magnificent views as you walk, rather than the best of the views be behind you all the way. 

We meet at the historic Carrington Hotel In Katoomba for our walking briefing at 8.30am. From here we transfer to Jenolan Caves where we enjoy a cave tour of these remarkable limestone formations. We enter the Temple of Baal Cave via the ‘Binoomea Cut’ along the manmade tunnel.  Then, they travel down the ‘Dragon’s Throat’, via a dramatic winding staircase. There are 2 massive chambers, one 42 metres high and filled with beautiful formations.  One of these formations, the 9 metres tall ‘Angel’s Wing’ shawl, is one of the largest cave shawls in the world.  The cave also offers beautiful examples of crystal helictites. After wards we start our walk on the Six Foot Track to Black Range. We pass the stunning Carlotta’s Arch overlooking Blue Lake and head up Binoomera Ridge. On the way, we will pass the pretty Jenolan Cottages a favourite stomping ground for mobs of kangaroos. Cross several fern gullies and creeks and forests of eucalypt before reaching Black Range Campground. Here our vehicle will meet us and transfer us to our accommodation for the night at the Valley View Homestay. This accommodation overlooks the valley and features an infinity pool where you can cool off after a day’s walk. Tonight enjoy a two-course meal featuring local produce and wines and chat about the day’s adventures.
