From the information sign at Evans Lookout car park, this walk follows the 'Evans Lookout' sign down the steps. The track passes a stone shelter on the right as it reaches the railed lookout.

Evans Lookout Alt = 951 m
Evans Lookout, Blue Mountains National Park, looks over the spectacular Grose Valley, with its deep gorges, green forest and prominent cliff lines. The fenced lookout is at the end of Evans Lookout Road. There is a rock shelter hut and toilets.

(0.08 km) Evans Lookout to Beauchamp Falls
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 1.48 km Time = 54 mins
Climb = 32 m Descent = -298 m
Turn sharp right: From Evans Lookout, the walk heads down the steps, passing the 'Grand Canyon' sign. From the bottom of the cliff stairs, the walk tends left onto the spur where it continues downhill and weaves past some boulders to a signposted intersection.
Veer right: From the intersection, the walk heads down the stairs into the gully following the Neates Glen and Grose Valley signs. The walk winds down the hill for approximately 100m to a railing. From here, the walk continues down the other side of the gully, winding down the hill for a short while. The walk then continues down the right-hand side of the gully to drop onto the creek with a signposted rock in the middle.
Veer left: From the intersection, the walk follows the signs to 'Rodriguez Pass' around the canyon side, with the creek on the left. After about 200m, the track crosses the creek. The walk follows the white arrows painted on the rocks winding down between, around and under large boulders for approximately 100m. The track then heads out of the pass, keeping close to the cliff line before winding down the hill to Beauchamp Falls.

Beauchamp Falls Alt = 683 m
Beauchamp Falls, Blue Mountains NP, is a beautiful set of falls, split by the rock in the centre of the creek. The falls are created by Greaves Creek, which comes out of the Grand Canyon, above. The falls are approximately 10m tall, with rocks at the base.

(1.56 km) Beauchamp Falls to Govetts and Greaves Flats
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 1.78 km Time = 58 mins
Climb = 10 m Descent = -309 m
Continue straight: From Beauchamp Falls, this walk heads down the hill keeping the valley on the right. The track winds through and around boulders to then meander with the hillside. The track winds for some time before descending more steeply, passing a section of rock overhangs which litter the ground with blocks of sandstone. The track passes this area and continues more steeply to a railed section of stairs which drop to a creek, which it crosses to the other side.
Continue straight: From the creek bank, this walk crosses to the other side of the creek. The track then turns left, heading downstream, following blue signposts and white arrows down the valley. The track soon passes a boulder with a large plank underneath it, set up as a seat, before passing a large mossy boulder. Approximately 300m on, the track passes another large mossy boulder with a white arrow at the bottom of the stairs. The track then continues down the hill, crossing the creek to a small clearing next to the creek, in which the track turns right and undulates across the hillside. The track drops into a few creek beds before climbing down a few stairs to an intersection at a campsite on the right.

(3.34 km) Govetts and Greaves Flats to Junction Rock
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 1.52 km Time = 30 mins
Climb = 31 m Descent = -60 m
Continue straight: From the intersection to the camp area, this walk heads downstream along the creek flats, below on the right of the track. The track then leaves the creek flats to wind and undulate higher on the hillside for approximately 600m, passing a few clearings with fireplace on the left. The track passes a brown arrow with 'Horse Track' scratched into it, and soon after comes to an intersection with a sign, with an arrow pointing back to 'Grand Canyon'.
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk heads downstream following the sign to 'Junction Rock'. The track soon passes a small clearing before climbing higher on the creek bank. After some time undulating, the track comes back onto the creek flats and continues to a section of cliffs on the left. The cliffs are passed by the track across the rockshelf next to a pool in the creek. The track soon turns left to Junction Rock, in the middle of the creek after the rock shelf.

Junction Rock Alt = 361 m
Junction Rock, Blue Mountains NP, is a rock situated in the middle of the Govetts Leap Brook and Govetts Creek junction. The rock is signposted, giving directions to Evans Lookout, Neates Glen, Acacia Flats and the Blue Gum Forest. Junction Rock is a great place for lunch and a swim in summer.

(4.87 km) Junction Rock to Bottom of Govetts Leap falls
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 2.35 km Time = 1 hr 15 mins
Climb = 390 m Descent = -22 m
Turn left: From Junction Rock, the walk follows the 'Govetts Leap' sign, soon crossing the brook. The track then follows the brook for approximately 150m, to another creek crossing. The track continues, with the creek now on its left, for approximately 60m, before crossing back to the other bank. The track continues for approximately 1km with the creek to the right, and undulates steeply in sections between magnificent waterfalls. A section of track traverses a rock shelf for a short stretch, before continuing to wind up and down (with the creek to the right) to a few sets of steeply-cut stairs. From these, the walk continues to wind over hills to a creek crossing. The track then heads up the spur, winding between views of waterfalls, before tending left further up the hill. The walk leads up the winding steps for some time, until crossing the creek at the bottom of a waterfall cascading off the large cliffs - Govetts Leap falls.

Govetts Leap (falls) Alt = 894 m
Govetts Leap, is a waterfall in the Blue Mountains National Park. The fall is fed by Govetts Leap Brook which runs over the cliff into the Grose Valley. The falls are best viewed from Govetts Leap and Barrow Lookouts. Leap is a scots dialect word for cataract or waterfall.

(7.22 km) Bottom of Govetts Leap falls to Govetts Leap Lookout
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 606 m Time = 42 mins
Climb = 305 m Descent = -61 m
Continue straight: From the bottom of Govetts Leap Falls, this walk heads north-west, following the blue signs up the hill. The track zigzags its way steeply up to a wall of rock covered by moss, ferns and grasses. The track passes along the base of this cliff to a metal staircase, passing through the rock. The track continues to wind steeply below the cliffline, passing two lookouts before coming to the signposted intersection.
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the sign to 'Govetts Leap carpark' up the stairs. The walk zigzags up the hill before tending left to the signposted intersection.
Turn left: From the intersection, this walk heads across the grassed area towards a platform structure. The walk climbs some stairs onto Govetts Leap Lookout, with its great views and sandstone monuments.

Govetts Leap Lookout Alt = 975 m
Govetts Leap Lookout is named after the first European man to have enjoyed this view, William Govett, as an assistant surveyor in June 1831[1]. Govetts Leap Lookout offers wonderful views over the Grose Valley and the spectacular Bridal Falls. The word `leap` is an old Scottish word meaning waterfall[2]. The lookout is easily accessed from the car park[3], there are also toilets[4][fac=8007] and picnic shelters[5][fac=8012] nearby.

Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 2.1 km Time = 53 mins
Climb = 165 m Descent = -104 m
Continue straight: From the lookout, this walk heads up the stairs, keeping the valley below on the left. The walk winds up the stairs for quite some time, then flattens out along the cliff top. This walk continues along the flat for approximately 100m before climbing up more stairs for approximately 200m, to a bench seat at the intersection. If the track begins to descend after the bench seat, then you have gone too far.
Veer left: From the intersection at the bench seat, this walk heads down the hill, with the valley on the left. The track flattens out for approximately 100m before swinging right, into a gully. The track climbs out of the gully and continues to undulate around the hillside for approximately 500m. The track then descends steeply into 'Haywards Gully' which has a boardwalk bridge. This walk follows the wooden boardwalk for approximately 30m, then continues along a flat, dirt track for approximately 60m. The track then climbs up the hill for approximately 100m to Evans Lookout car park.

Unfortunately this walk is no longer possible due to the closure of the Rodriguez Pass track between Grand Canyon and Junction Rock. The ranger I spoke to (12/4/09) said the path was closed due to extensive rock falls at Beauchamp Falls and was unaware of any plans to reopen it.
Tim - Horse Track IP:58.168.9.xxx | 2011-05-06 14:55:19
A similar walk can still be undertaken via Horse Track. NWPS have put new signs up. Horse Track was up until recently sign posted with Track Closed (mostly ignored). New signs indciate experienced walkers only. I found the track easy to follow but you must know what you're doing. You turn off on the descent down from Evans and do not go as far as the Canyon. Track follows a different spur and cuts out Beauchamp (as Rodriguez pass is closed). Horse Track is in a similar position to the non-highlighted dotted line on Map of Walk tab. Take plenty of water on a hot day, maybe even powerade or similar, and usual precautions. Limited to no mobile signal in valley.
Maz - Rodriguez Pass IP:125.255.40.xxx | 2011-09-02 04:26:54
Rodriguez Pass is now open and NPWS has re-opened the part through the landslide. Did it yesterday. Great to see the walk up and running again.
Ecca - Govetts Leap to Evans LO via J IP:202.172.117.xxx | 2011-11-25 10:31:09
Walked this on Monday last with a mate. Fantastic overall, but the climb from the valley floor back up to Evans LO is fraught with unevenly spaced and sized irregular rock steps that seem to go on forever. I'm fit, but had a hard time going up. Still, done in 6.5hrs with an hour's worth of breaks, including a much needed half an hour float in one of the rock pools halfway up to Evans LO - to regain some energy! Highly recommended if you like a bit of a challenge.
Rob O'Hanlon - Evans Lookout circut IP:101.161.29.xxx | 2012-02-24 08:32:49
Walked Evans lookout circut via Junction rock & Govetts leap. It's what's bushwalking is all about. Took 6 hrs, taking it relatively easy, stopping for lunch and a swim and looking for the track a couple of times. Great creek crossings, waterfalls, scenery. Could be forgiven thinking that it's some of the best scenery in the world.
A must do
Clare - Beauchamp Falls IP:114.72.189.xxx | 2012-10-08 10:57:53
Did this walk last weekend - beautiful scenery and a great challenging walk. The only part I struggled with was locating the track around Beauchamp Falls as it disappears when you reach the boulders (no worn ground to follow on the rocks!). I lost about 20 minutes here looking for the track - my suggestion would be to look for the piles of sticks that previous kind souls have placed to direct you, and look for what appears to be a small cave but is actually a small tunnel that you need to pass through between 2 large boulders. Inside the tunnel there is a white arrow painted on the rock but you can't see it until you get inside. Despite this slight mishap and a 20 minute break for lunch, I did this walk in 5 hours.

Did this walk on 9/3/2013 with my brother who was visiting from Alice Springs. He was really quite impressed and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The track is very hard to follow around the landslide areas of Rodriguez Pass, a copy of the track notes and map is a must ! We did this walk in 6 hrs with 3 food breaks and some faffing around the landslide. With the rain we've had lately the falls are really flowing but we were never unable to cross any of the creeks. Signage is reasonable but we nearly turned up a track that went back to Evans Lookout, it was in the section along the creek to Junction rock, it headed up and away from the creek, it's best to stay along the creek until you hit Junction Rock, you can't miss it.
Mike - Track open? IP:203.14.171.xxx | 2013-04-22 07:14:04
Hi guys,

Is this hike still open?
Matt - open...yes, I can vouch for Ev IP:101.119.16.xxx | 2013-04-28 09:08:17
I hiked Evans Lookout along Grose Valley today with final destination being Edenderry Falls. The landslide above Beauchamp Falls is still there - there's a chain-rope mounted to the cliff edge to guide you over affected area which is only 3-4m if that. Once passed that and down the cliffside, when you reach the landslide itself, there were clear white arrow markings painted on strategic boulders which made navigation down to the forest easy. [Slight-detour:- Scramble over the landslide towards the sound of the water and this will bring you to the boulders near Beauchamp Falls. Definitely worth a look. Access to the waters edge is straightforward, albeit with a bit more boulder scrambling] Once back on the main landslide, follow the white arrows on the rocks and when you reach the tree line you will see red & white plastic tape wrapped around strategic tree's along the way to guide you down further into valley floor. Beauty of this track is once you leave the Evans L.O - Grand Canyon descent/climb section you can say goodbye to most of the hikers and along the rodriguez pass you'll pretty much have the scenery and beauty to yourself.
Charles - Track open? IP:202.177.218.xxx | 2014-01-06 22:29:17
Hi Guys,

Is this track still open? Are the track notes enough to not get lost ?

Did it today with my partner in the reverse direction. Fantastic views and great little swim spots along the way but very cold water. It took us 5 1/2 hours with a 2 breaks. Climbing up to Govetts leap is defiantly hard going.

Walked this on the weekend - despite constant rain, it was a majestic walk, and well marked (even through the old rock falls at Beauchamp falls - I took copies of the comments for navigating the rock falls, but didn't need them). Took us 6.5 hours with 3 breaks. Highly recommended walk

just bought and downloaded this walk, however the price was $1.99, but was charged $2.49.

Yes it's only a matter of cents, but somewhat false and misleading, which is a breach of section 52 of the trade practises act!

Mmmmmmmm

Hi Ross
Very sorry about that. I have updated the database on the app since apple changed the prices but I am having trouble getting the update out to all users. If you run the update prices within the app it should hopefully correct. The price on some peoples phones still says $1.99 but when you buy another window pops up saying the price will be $2.49 before you actually buy.
I will try to send another update again today. feel free to email me if you want to discuss this further, happy to refund the difference.
Hope you enjoyed the walk.
Matt :)

Did this walk with three other friends on Easter Monday. Lovely scenery but found it fairly brutal on the knees with all the stairs both down and up. Took us 4 hours with 3 decent breaks and a handful of breath-catchers, plus about 40 min to the car along the cliff top walk. Still a little sore!
