Hard track
Tunnel View Lookout walk is a short walk along a well-maintained management trail. At the end of the wide trail is a short narrow track leading to a large mostly flat rock platform with great views. On the far side of the gorge you can just see where train tunnel goes through the hill, you can’t see the actual tunnel. You do get great views of Glenbrook Creek Gorge, the Blue Mountains and Sydney. A lovely walk.
