Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long60 Best walks | This is one of the NPA's 60 best walks.(NEW!!!) We start at the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, then walk down the Furber Stairs and along the Federal Pass walking track where we will access Mt Solitary, which has been out of bounds for over a year due to the previous fires of last summer. Then over the top of Mt.Solitary, down the Col and over the Kedumba River before we climb up onto the Kings Tableland where we finish the walk. This is a big walk with 2 decent climbs but all on tracks. Anyone contemplating this walk should be fit as this is definitely not a bludge walk by any means! Rock scrambling up onto Mt Solitary.
