Six Foot Track

Beautiful bush views on the Six Foot Track

The Six Foot Track is the best way to get the true feel of New South Wales rich history and its evolution over the last 200 years. Winding through State Forests and National Parks, the track follows the 45 kilometre route of the original 1884 horse track from Katoomba to Jenolan Caves. (See the History page for more information)

It usually takes three days to walk the whole track, but shorter walks can also be taken on sections of the track where road access is possible, making the track a perfect day trip or overnight camping experience.
The track begins at the Explorers' Tree on the great Western Highway between Katoomba and Medlow Bath and ends up at Jenolan Caves. See the Six Foot Track sections and walks for an overview of track sections

IMPORTANT NOTE: There are often temporary closures on the track due to maintenance, operational works, seasonal conditions and extreme weather events. Please check local signage for advice
