Jamieson Lookout Alt = 922 m
Jamieson Lookout is a fenced lookout at the east end of the Federal Pass track, and just off Prince Henry Cliff Walk. The lookout has a bench seat and provides great views up the Jamison Valley, along Kings Tableland escarpment and past Mount Solitary. The lookout is perched up on a large rock buttress, giving views unobscured by trees.

Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 93 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -36 m

Fern Bower Alt = 892 m
Fern Bower is an especially pleasant part of the Blue Mountains National Park, protected from heat and providing a great environment for fern trees, bracken ferns and moss to thrive. Fern Bower is a signposted area along the Federal Pass walking track, just below Jamieson Lookout and next to Linda Creek. This is a nice place to stop, rest and enjoy the bird noises.

(0.32 km) Fern Bower to Int of Federal Pass and the Amphitheatre track
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 320 m Time = 13 mins
Climb = 10 m Descent = -150 m

Turn right: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Federal Pass Leura Forest' sign down the long metal staircase, to cross the bridge over Linda Creek in front of Lila Falls.

Lila Falls Alt = 736 m
Lila Falls is a thin waterfall on Linda Creek. The Federal Pass crosses the creek (on a bridge) in front of these falls, just below the intersection with the amphitheatre. The waterfall is not the most spectacular one in this valley, but it is a nice cool spot to catch your breath.

(0.66 km) Lila Falls crossing to Marguerite Cascades
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 175 m Time = 11 mins
Climb = 37 m Descent = -90 m
Continue straight: From the Lila Falls, this walk follows the track heading down the hill, winding down a wooden walkway keeping the creek to the left. The track hugs the rock wall and passes under a shallow overhang. The walk continues down a staircase, then turns back down into the gully where it come to the taller and slender Linda Falls.
After passing Linda Falls the walk follows the wooden steps down through the gulley, crossing the creek again before heading down to the Marguerite Cascades.

Marguerite Cascades Alt = 684 m
Marguerite Cascades are a series of small cascades finishing with a taller waterfall of a few metres height, dropping into a shallow sandy pool. The cascades are on Linda Creek and a small bridge crosses the creek at the base of the falls as part of the Federal Pass walking track. The cascades are a nice place to sit and listen to the water running and the local birds in this cool shady area.

(0.84 km) Marguerite Cascades to Leura Forest
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 321 m Time = 11 mins
Climb = 50 m Descent = -14 m
Continue straight: From the 'Marguerite Cascades'[1], this walk follows the timber steps downhill, winding steeply for a short while until coming to an intersection with a faint track, marked with a timber 'Federal Pass' sign[2], just beside a foot bridge[3].
Veer right: From the intersection, this walk crosses Linda Creek just below a pleasant cascade[4] using the foot bridge with a handrail[5]. This walk then continues along the bush track that winds along the valley floor, to the signposted 'Leura Forest'. From here, the walk continues along the wide bush track, passing a few picnic tables, and winding through the forest to an open area with a large gazebo and an information sign at the intersection of the Federal Pass and the Dardenelles tracks.

Leura Forest Alt = 721 m
Leura Forest is a great picnic area in the Jamison Valley at the junction of the Federal Pass and Dardenelles Tracks. This place was home to a popular tea house (also known as 'Lady Carrington Dining Hall') from the late 1800's[6]. Today walkers can still enjoy the historic rotunda and the foundations of the original tea house[7]. The picnic area provides a great rest spot under the shade of the lilli pilli and coachwood forest.

(1.16 km) Leura Forest (Int of Federal Pass and Dardenelles Tracks) to Int of Federal Pass, Scenic Railway and Dardenelles Tracks
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 1.29 km Time = 36 mins

Continue straight: From Leura Forest, the walk follows the 'Federal Pass' sign towards 'Scenic Railway'. Shortly after crossing a small creek using a little bridge, the track begins to steadily go downhill then flatten out. The environment surrounding the bush track at this point is quite dense and, while very pretty, it is difficult to see views of the surrounding area, although there are occasional glimpses of Sublime Point Service Trail on the left. After a while, the track begins to steadily climb to a signposted intersection with 'Dardenelles Pass'. There are several signposts and a bench seat.

(2.44 km) Int of Federal Pass, Scenic Railway and Dardenelles Tracks to Bottom of Giant Staircase
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 289 m Time = 10 mins
Climb = 36 m Descent = -33 m
Turn right: From the intersection, the walk follows the sign pointing along the 'Dardenelles Track' towards the 'Giant Steps' - this is the upper track, keeping the main cliffs on the left. After the first short rise, the track flattens out and continues with some great views over the valley. At several points, small seats have been installed to enjoy these views. The track soon comes to an intersection signposted as the 'Giant Staircase'.

(2.73 km) Bottom of Giant Staircase to Leura Forest (Int of Federal Pass and Dardenelles Tracks)
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 873 m Time = 27 mins
Climb = 89 m Descent = -108 m
Continue straight: From the bottom of the Giant Staircase, this walk follows the Dardanelles Pass sign towards 'Leura Forest', keeping the main cliff face on the left. There are occasional good views out over the valley to the east. Gradually, the track begins to descend and becomes more shady. In this section of track, there are often fallen logs across the track, which will need to be climbed over. Gradually, the track descends down behind the pergola at Leura Forest.

(3.61 km) Leura Forest to Lower Linda Creek Falls
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 301 m Time = 10 mins

Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 195 m Time = 12 mins
Climb = 95 m Descent = -37 m

Continue straight: From Marguerite Cascades, this walk climbs steeply up the wooden steps, then turns left and crosses Linda Creek. These steps climb to a bridge, where the walk passes the tall and slender Linda Falls.
From Linda Falls the walk heads up the wooden and metal staircases. The walk then follows the wooden boardwalk that hugs the side of a rock wall under a shallow overhang before heading up some more steps and soon coming to a small bridge crossing Linda Creek in front of Lila Falls.

(4.1 km) Lila falls crossing to Int of Federal Pass and the Amphitheatre track
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 23 m Time = 1 mins
Climb = 18 m Descent = 0 m
Continue straight: From the Lila Falls, this walk crosses the bridge and heads up the metal staircase. At the top of this climb the walk comes to signposted intersection with the 'Amphitheatre track'.

(4.12 km) Int of Federal Pass and the Amphitheatre track to Fern Bower
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 320 m Time = 13 mins
Climb = 150 m Descent = -10 m
Turn left: From the intersection, the walk follows the 'Prince Henry Cliff Walk' sign up the timber steps, keeping the valley on the right. The walk winds up the long wooden steps through the rainforest, until it reaches the Fern Bower information sign.

Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 93 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 36 m Descent = 0 m

(4.54 km) Int of Federal Pass and Jamieson Lookout Tracks to Carrington Park
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 225 m Time = 5 mins
Climb = 22 m Descent = -5 m
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk heads up the wooden steps and follows the bush track, winding up the gentle hill to the signposted intersection with the 'Prince Henry Cliff Walk'.
Turn left: From the intersection, the track follows the 'Echo Point' sign along the bush track, winding through the forest for a short while before climbing up a set of wooden steps, to the intersection with the Carrington Park Track (not signposted).
Turn right: From the intersection, the walk follows the bush track up the stairs. Just past the sign for 'Blue Mountains National Park', the track emerges onto Cliff Drive. Crossing the road, the walk goes into Carrington Park.

Great walk, Leura Forest is magic! Going down from Carrington Park down to Leura Forest was really demanding for our knees, there are really lots of steps there, our legs were jelly at the bottom :) Once we reached Giant Stairway through Dardanells Pass we decided to take it and climbed all the way up to Three Sisters. We didn't want to climb those Carrington Park steps so our loop track returned on top of Prince Henry Cliff path which is a great alternative route for those who want to take some pictures with Three Sisters and save your legs.
