Part 3 of an 8 Part Series


27.7km / 7 Hour Hike, Train There and Back. 1415m Ascent


Train ride (75 mins) from Sydney central to Brooklyn, Then a train back from Berowra


Trail shoes, about 3L of water, hiking pack with snacks and lunch. First aide kit, Sunscreen, Shorts, T-shirt, Overjacket and change of top for the trip back

What started out as relatively easy day hike turned out to be quite the rollercoaster ending (so many up and down hills)

Short walk across the railway tracks after coming out of the bush on the eastern side of the tracks

Cowan Station Cowan Station facing south

Cowan Station 2 Cowan Station facing north

So many stairs, I believe we ascended and decended around 5 times around Berowra waters which for us was the last couple of hours of the hike

Few More Boulders to Climb up and down for Good Measure

Quite the leg burner though the distantance was reasonable, Easily done within daylight if you start out early enough. And leave time for drinks at the pub : Club Berowra
