This popular 3 hour (6.2 km) walk in the upper reaches of Lane Cove National Park showcases a rich variety of flora and fauna.

Along the iconic sandstone ridges many small birds such as honeyeaters, wattlebirds, and wrens may be seen. In the Devlins and Byles Creek valleys we may even be lucky enough observe the resident roosting Powerful Owl. Who will be the first to spot the whale?
