This walk leads from the information center at Echo Point down through the Blue Mountains National Park to Oreades Lookout. It is a popular walk and follows a smooth concreted path the whole way. There are no steps but sections do get steep in places. The short side trip to Spooners lookout is well worth the extra effort. A lovely walk suitable for the whole family.
