From Wentworth Falls Picnic area, this walk explores some great lookouts and their vistas. The views of Jamison Valley, Mount Solitary and the Kings Tableland are simply spectacular. This walk goes down a moderate slope, along a well-managed track to Princes Rock Lookout. Take your time on the walk back up and consider a picnic lunch back at the picnic area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
