Govetts Leap to Pulpit Rock, Blue Mountains

Posted by redkoireviews on 12/07/2006

Bridal Veil FallsAfter staying the night at Jemby, my Partner and I got up the next day to do the walk from Govetts Leap to Pulpit Rock. Compared to the Grand Canyon loop, it’s easy going, mainly because it doesn’t drop down to the floor of the valley. It is pretty rough in places though, so bring good boots.

The walk from Govetts leap rewards you early on with good views of Bridal Veil falls (see opposite). Take the time to look out over the spectacular Grose Valley. The natural amphitheatre formed at the head of horseshoe falls is spectacular – it’s shear cliff faces look more geometric than most of the cliff-line.

After horseshoe falls the walk is still nice, but not as spectacular as the previous sections. I suspect this stretch could have a lot of flowers in spring and summer. Once we reached Pulpit rock, we’d already seen so many amazing views that we probably didn’t appreciate these ones as much as we should have. That and the fact that it was bloody freezing made us turn round and head home.
