A lovely trail that heads through the beautiful woods of Leura Forest.

Runner Notes

The start (or end depending on which way you run it) is steep, but once you get past this section, the trail levels out for a nice run along the valley floor.

Description

From the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, the Dardenelles Pass Trail descends steeply down to the wooded Jamison Valley. Once down the steep start of the trail, the running is significantly easier as the trail winds alongside a crystal clear stream under the dense canopy of Leura Forest.

Near the end of the trail, you'll pass the Giant Stairway which you can climb back up to Prince Henry Cliff Walk or a short ways further on, the trail ends at Federal Pass where you can continue on your adventure deeper into the Blue Mountains.

The trail makes for a great loop option when combined with the Giant Stairway and Prince Henry Cliff Walk. Just be sure to save enough energy to climb back up the cliff!

Flora & Fauna

Eucalyptus, coachwood, sassafrass, and lilly pilly. Lyre birds, sulphur-crested cockatoo, and bell birds.
