Six Foot Track sections and walks

Walking sections on the Six Foot Track

The 45km Six Foot Track can be taken in one long walk (usually about three days), 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. Note the walk can be done in reverse of the order shown below.

Katoomba/Coxs River
  • 15kms
  • Difficulty - Hard

Starts near the Explorer Tree and follows the main track down to the cliff top lookout above the gorge of Nellie’s Glen. From here, it continues through the valley, following the Coxs River, which you will cross by the Bowtells Swing Bridge before arriving at the Coxs River campsite.

Coxs River Camp/Black Range
  • 19kms
  • Difficulty - Hard

The next section of the track takes you over the Mini Mini Saddle to the Alum Creek campsite following through to Little River, a tributary of the Coxs River. From here, the track climbs up the Black Range to the highest point of the track.

Black Range Camp/Jenolan Caves
  • 10kms
  • Difficulty - Hard

The last section of the track heads along a steep fire trail down Binoomera Ridge passing Carlotta Arch before arriving at Jenolan Caves. The entire track provides a variety of altitudes, aspects, climates and soil types. There is an abundance of birds, wildlife, vegetation and flora to be spotted along the way.

Campsites are located at Coxs River, Alum Creek and on the Black Range with facilities available at Coxs River and Black Range. There is also other accommodation available at Jenolan Caves.
