Swim | A trip that involves swimmingWalk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.Public Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.Without a doubt this is one of my favourite walks in the Blue Mountains! Why you may well ask? Stunning scenery with surprisingly wild country so close to Sydney, with some superb walking along Erskine Creek, which is rich in pools and cascades, as well as rugged clifflines. One of the pools is about a 100 metres long and it's a fantastic place for a swim of course! Also, expect to see lots of spring blossoms along the way as we meander down the creek. Basically a good hike for hedonists and nature lovers that won't fail to satisfy your inner cravings for the wild side of life! Rock scrambling.
