Experienced only
Passing close by one of the prettiest campsites in the Blue Mountains (Deep Pass), the Nayook Canyon Bushtrack explores the beautiful Nayook Creek. Winding its way through the ferns along the creek bed, climbing small cascading waterfalls and scrambling around rock-pools are all the delights of this walk. Care must be taken on slippery sections, with ropes to help on some steeper parts.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.
