Women Embrace Hiking - Berowra to Mt Kuring-Gai along Cowan Creek
Time & Location
About The Adventure
About the Hike: This hike is a beautiful 12 km walk from Berowra Train station to Kuring-gai Train Station. From the ridges above Cowan Creek, this walk takes in some great lookouts (especially around Mt Kuring-gai) as well as enjoying an extremely pleasant bush track along the creek. We will take the time to enjoy the many creek side rest areas along the way stopping to catch our breath and take in the beautiful scenery. This track gives walkers a good taste of what Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park has to offer. If time permits we have time to take a side trip to Apple Tree Bay. We estimate the hike will take 5- 6 hours in total, taking into consideration morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea breaks as well as time to enjoy our surrounds.
