Pulpit Rock Walk

There is nothing more interesting than taking a remarkable walk to Pulpit Rock. The area offers magnificent sceneries beyond the cliffline surrounding the Grose Valley. Most of the views are coming from the Griffiths Taylor Wall, the Evans Lookout and the Govetts Leap. You will get to see amazing section of coastline and heathlands which makes Pulpit Rock an interesting place to explore.

  • From the Govetts leap Lookout, go left downhill along the foot track going to the cliffline.
  • About 400 m you will get to see the beautiful Horseshoe Falls crest.
  • To reach the creek area and a track fork you need to take the steps to descend.
  • To cross the creek you need to turn right then follow the good foot track that leads east and north east close to the cliff rim passing the Cripps Lookout.
  • The  Pulpit Rock appears next.
  • Cross the gully and co0ntinue to walk southwards to complete the last 300 m of the walk circuit.
  • Close to the rock lookout you will get to see a track from the nearby car park that appears on the left.
